Programme 46: about Music- The Art of Listening: Romantic Lieder

--:--
One of my favourite music genres in programme 46!

We are starting with fingerprints of the different genres of the 19th century, and first up is Lieder, or German songs.
The music is by Franz Schubert, Felix Mendelssohn, Johannes Brahms, Hugo Wolf, Richard Strauss, Carl Loewe, and Robert Schumann.
Some of my favourite music today, so I really hope you will join me!
