Jump on the #groovytrain a la 19th century to explore the composers of the Romantic era. This was a college text from a course I took on Romanticism in music. While I tended to listen to harder music, a good piece of classical music is perfect to soothe stress and anxiety. Composers such as Beethoven and Chopin are covered in this book. #RedRoseSeptember

arlenefinnigan Recommend me some Romantic music to block out my workmates, their mouths haven't stopped flapping all day and I can't cope. 4w
Librarybelle @arlenefinnigan I‘m partial to the pianists of that era, Chopin and Liszt are two of my favorites. Their compositions are so melodious and peaceful. Beethoven fits into this era, as he was I think midpoint in his compositions when the era started. Beethoven is always a good go to for stress - Symphony Number 9 jumps to mind. Wagner also falls into this - his composition about the Valkyries is perfect for angst! 4w

ravenlee @arlenefinnigan may I recommend some Tchaikovsky? My favorite Romantic composer, and usually good for drowning out babble. 4w
