× Disc IV of Music@Menlo LIVE 2019 features a collection of quintessential German Romantic voices. By the mid-nineteenth century, the Romantic era had reached its apex with its impassioned music in full bloom. The music of Schumann and Mendelssohn personifies the age’s ethos of unrestrained emotions and blinding virtuosity. The late music of Brahms, emblematic of the final chapter of the German Romantic tradition, serves as a subtle yet powerful anchor in the center of this dynamic fourth volume.
