about the Course

The first half of the nineteenth century saw a generation of composers who were celebrated not only in their own time but still continue to be beloved today. Consider their names: Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Fredéric Chopin, Felix Mendelssohn, Franz Liszt, Hector Berlioz. They join with the efflorescence of wonderful opera composers such as Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini—and early Verdi. Some of the less-remembered figures such as Weber, Spohr, Moscheles, and Meyerbeer round out what should be a delightful romp through a dearly-loved and justly valued era of music.
