Romantic Era songs for cello
Do you like your cello music highly dramatic and unpredictable . . . with tender, beautiful melodies one moment, and violent outbursts in the next? Then the Romantic Era is for you! Running from around 1825 to 1910, the Romantic Era ushered in a new, more personally expressive style of music. Famous Romantic Era composers are Johannes Brahms, Hector Berlioz, and Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The music for cello in this era became more technically challenging to reflect the wider expressive range. Some of the important cello music from this period are the Dvořák Cello Concerto, Kol Nidrei by Max Bruch, and The Sonata in E Minor by Brahms. There are also many simple and beautiful themes from the Romantic Era that can be played by even beginner cellists.
