The Beloved Vision: Music in the Romantic Age
Finishes at: Sunday 16 October 7:00 PM
There is far more to Romantic music than meets the eye, and the ear. Its emotional resonance has moved generations of musicians and, through them, countless listeners. Stephen Walsh’s magnificent portrayal reminds us of the sweet melody of a Schubert song, the heroine dying for love in an Italian opera, the swooning orchestration of a Tchaikovsky symphony, but insists that Romantic music is also a lot more than that. The Beloved Vision is an exciting and colourful story, told with passion but also with the precision and clarity of detail for which the writer is so widely admired.
An Emeritus Professor of Cardiff University and author of books on Stravinsky and Debussy, Stephen Walsh is a reviewer and leading authority on classical music.
