Romantic Era (1820-1910)

There are some great recordings in this category. The 10-minute Concert Waltz by Alexander Glazunov is often licensed because its’ addictive waltz tempo and attractive string melody create such a happy, carefree mood. Another work in the same vein is Reinhold Gliere’s Valse from his ballet The Bronze Horseman. Here you have another big, catchy, orchestral melody that creates an uplifting atmosphere. This work also provides a great example of what is meant by “Romantic” era style where the emotions are big and the orchestra is used fully at virtuoso levels. There are also some great Impressionist works by Ravel and Scriabin that kind of straddle the Romantic Era into the early Modern Era of the twentieth century.
