Yes, my parents did have a serious side when it came to music.

My parents had all the biggies, You know…real toe-tappers. Vivaldi, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich.

And THIS very nice record with two composers who were on the cusp between the classical and romantic eras of music in the early 1800s. Let’s really go back into musical time with Volume 16: Beethoven and Schubert

Ludwig van Beethoven’s 5th Symphony was written between 1804 and 1808. It was a significant work because it was composed during the transition from the Classical to the Romantic Period. It is important because it represents the culmination of the Classical Era, and the ignition of the Romantic Era.

Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 may be the most famous unfinished work in the symphonic repertoire. Because of the depth of feeling and drama of the work it has been called the first Romantic era symphony by some.

One was a pallbearer for the other, then died a year later.
