The last decades of the 19th century and the first of the 20th mark the last flowering of romanticism. We journey through German romanticism with late piano pieces by Liszt and Brahms. Via four delightful songs by Gustav Mahler, we arrive at Richard Strauss’s wonderful songs “Morgen” and the “Four Last Songs”. The shape of things to come is illustrated by Schoenberg’s Three Piano Pieces, Op. 11.
