Great Romantic Symphonies 10-CD Set


$45.49 $69.98

The 19th century brought various changes to the symphonic form. Although both inspired by Beethoven, Berlioz’s experiments with instrumental color and orchestral size are a world away from the colossal symphonies of Brahms. Mahler and Bruckner pushed the traditional symphonic landscapes to their limits, in sharp contrast to the uplifting classically based symphonies of Mendelssohn and Schubert. The nationalistic flavors of Schumann, Strauss and Dvořák exemplify the way form flourished in the Romantic era, whilst the visceral impact of the Gallic panache is typified by the symphonies of Franck and Saint-Saëns. Total Time: Over 12 hours
