In this volume of our "History of Music," Leon Plantinga explores the origins and development of Romanticism, guiding the reader through the conglomerate of works and geniuses that so proliferated during the turbulent nineteenth century: instrumental music, vocal music, and world of the opera are analyzed with brilliance in their different forms and national schools.

Beginning in the middle years of Beethoven, and traversing the main genres cultivated throughout this period, such as symphony, Lied or chamber music, the author weaves an elaborate speech that allows to see in a new light the great figures of the time and their creations, from Schubert and Berlioz to Bruckner and Brahms, to Rossini, Mussorgky or Dvorak, and, of course, the colossal figures of Wagner and Verdi.

Throughout the book, the reader will find the detailed analysis of some twenty key works of the period, in addition to abundant illustrations and musical examples, which, together with the final bibliography, will allow the interested party to deepen in all aspects of music romantic.
