THIS MONTH’S PAIRING: Chopin and Champagne
Be whisked away to Paris, the city of lights and love, as you explore the Romantic period. Working during the Industrial Revolution, artists began to turn inward, focusing on reflective forms, while others used self-portraits or autobiographies. Hector Berlioz’s symphonic score, Symphonie Fantastique, and Caspar David Freidrich’s painting, Wanderer above the Sea of Fog are exemplary Romantic works that transport us into the artists’ aesthetic and emotional imaginations. No “classical” rules apply at this Peace Interlude!
