GCSE (AQA) Music listening resources AOS 1 - The piano music of Chopin and Robert Schumann

by Liz Dunbar @HuntSchoolMusic

Solo piano music really takes off in the 19th century. It's the era of the virtuoso musician, but also a time when having a piano in your home, and learning to play it was all the rage. The vast range of  piano works composed by Chopin and Robert Schumann demonstrate that they wrote for both the amateur and professional musicians. Their music is full of the programmatic, emotional and expressive character of Romanticism.
