  • Overview

    The marriage of poetry and musical expression in the late 18th and early 19th centuries offers a wealth of choral music marked by expression, emotion and virtuosity. The music presented on this concert draws inspiration from melancholy, love and natural elements, favored literary subjects of the era. This concert will feature music by Romantic masters in Germany, Austria and England, who turned from being supported by the aristocracy to being supported by the middle class. From the simplicity of folk-inspired music to works for large, civic choral ensembles, there is something for everyone on this concert.
