On Front:
Join renowned musicologist Dr. Maurice Hinson for an engaging lecture on how to achieve a more historically informed performance of piano music from the Romantic period.

On Back:
The Romantic period emerged in the 19th century, during a time of great political and economic change. The French Revolution, the concept of democracy and autonomy over one_s life, the industrial revolution and global expansion created an atmosphere of individualism that the world had never before experienced. Philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau_s famous motto "Return to nature" became a pivotal and passionate voice for literary writers and political activists, and their zealous feelings had a profound influence on composers. In this outstanding 60-minute video-lecture, music historian Dr. Maurice Hinson explores specifically how Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Mendelssohn and Schumann were influenced by their literary and artistic contemporaries. Performance practices are discussed and characteristic musical selections are beautifully performed in this highly informative presentation.
