Transcript of Romantic Era

Romantic Era
Frederic Chopin (1810 – 1849)
Polish Composer
All of Chopin's compositions include the piano.
Most are for solo piano, though he also wrote two piano concertos, a few chamber pieces, and some songs to Polish lyrics.
His keyboard style is highly individual and often technically demanding; his own performances were noted for their nuance and sensitivity.

How Music Affects Emotions
Music Terms
the use of musical ideas or motifs that are identified with a specific country, region, or ethnicity, such as folk tunes and melodies, rhythms, and harmonies inspired by them.
Contra bassoon:
a bassoon that is larger and longer than the normal type and sounds an octave lower in pitch.
Means "realism". Operas were written as true events or current lifestyles, particularly about the poor.
Song Cycle:
a group, or cycle, of individually complete songs designed to be performed in a sequence as a unit.
any sounds drawn from outside the traditional Western European musical experience.
Programme music:
Based upon a book, painting or even a feeling. Different sounds are known as tone colours. Composers used tone colours to create varied moods and emotions.
a small flute sounding an octave higher than the ordinary one.
a musical instrument, roughly triangular in shape, consisting of a frame supporting a graduated series of parallel strings, played by plucking with the fingers.
Pianoforte: the common musical instrument with a board of black and white keys, eighty-eight in all. The keys operate hammers that strike wires.
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
He published compositions were written exclusively for the piano until 1840; he later composed works for piano and orchestra.
Schumann suffered from a lifelong mental disorder, first manifesting itself in 1833 as a severe melancholic depressive episode, which recurred several times alternating with phases of ‘exaltation’ and increasingly also delusional ideas of being poisoned or threatened with metallic items.
