The Romantic period (1820-1900) was a period that focused on emotional intensity, breaking rules and individual experiences. The most common definintion for this period is , ” romantic is applied to literature , visual arts and music that emphasize imagination over objective observation, intense emotion over reason, freedom and spontaneity over order and control”. One thing i find very interesting about this time period is that dramatic stories could be told without words.

One thing i already know about this time period is the romantic period did not mean romance, most music was about war and personal feelings not love and this is why i feel like this is the most misunderstood period. The text book describes the romantic period as a adventure for the musician it was like a rebel era , something not seen before.
