Quote from: Mandryka on May 06, 2016, 09:44:11 PMCan someone confirm or deny that Album for the Young cannot have been intended for youngsters because most of the pieces are too difficult? It's one of Green's "arguments."
QuoteEdmund Burke's Philosophical Enquiry (1757) connected the sublime with experiences of awe, terror and danger. Burke saw nature as the most sublime object, capable of generating the strongest sensations in its beholders. This Romantic conception of the sublime proved influential for several generations of artists.

Quote from: Scion7 on May 09, 2016, 05:27:30 AMOk, curiosity got the better of me, so I drug out the live recording of this piece from 1819 - Trio for Flute, Cello & Piano in g, Op.63WEBER-Kuoto, Hasegawa, GriceAllegro moderato-Scherzo. Allegro vivace-Schäfers Klage. Andante espressivo-Finale. Allegro- that I had on the computer, since the LP at home is ... at home. The first movement is a battle between the Classical and the Romantic in tone - the Scherzo seems purely Classical - the Shepherd's Lament, due to the programmatic nature, I will grant you is Romantic. The Finale I would put in the Romantic side of the line.
Quote from: Jo498 on May 09, 2016, 04:32:43 AMThe three mature operas can hardly described as anything else than fully fledged romanticism and they are his most important works, I think. Freischütz was immediately recognized as the birth of German romantic opera ...
