Romantic Inspirations

Fri Jul 23 - 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Composers in the Romantic era were often inspired by the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. Some even felt like he was too tough an act to follow: Brahms began writing string sextets in part because he felt too intimidated to write more quartets after Beethoven! These pieces all feature their own tip-of-the-hat to the great Ludwig Van.
