Concert Program IV

Romantic Twilight

As the Romantic movement matured, music became more about art, nature, and experiences. The French rallied behind the sensuous music of their country following the Franco-Prussian War; Russians told sad tales from their vast and cold land; Bohemians mined the folk traditions of their countrymen; and composers such as Brahms shared their most personal thoughts with the world.

This concert is preceded by a free afternoon Prelude Performance at 5 p.m. by the 2023 International Program artists.
