With warm melodies and long lyrical passages, Romantic composers were able to lead people do love their music. Additionally the rhythm was changed by changing the tempo and time signatures (mostlywind.co.uk). While some composers used elaborate technical performances others utilized intimate forms and delicate textures. Giving their music a sense of unity, the primary goal of the Romantic composers was to convey emotion. Sometimes melting together, the forms of this new music were not as clear as in the Classical Period and musical tension was used for emotional response, such as melodies having long dynamic climaxes (kaulblepianostudio.com).
Many artists are using some type form of text painting. I believe it evolve just as much music evolved. There is a difference of text painting between the two songs I chose. Listen to as Vesta was from latmos hill descending was amazingly dramatic compare to Justin Timberlake “What goes around.” song. Some people may not agree with text painting but allows the audience to engage into the music.
Mozart also added to the symphony by contrasting memorable lyric themes in full sounding orchestral settings. “The elements in the formation of the early classical style are in short, periodic, articulated phrase. Articulated, periodic phrasing brought about two fundamental alterations in the nature of the eighteenth-century music: one was a heightened, sensitivity to symmetry, and the second was a rhythmic texture of great variety, with the different rhythms not contrasted or super-imposed, but passing logically and easily into each other” (Rosen 58). The classical characteristics didn’t appear one by one, but at different times during this important period in history. The classical era, with the progress of the classical music, at times was, irregular.

Romanticism Roughly from 1815 to 1910, this period of time is called the romantic period. At this period, all arts are transforming from classic arts by having greater emphasis on the qualities of remoteness and strangeness in essence. The influence of romanticism in music particularly, has shown that romantic composers value the freedom of expression, movement, passion, and endless pursuit of the unattainable fantasy and imagination. The composers of the romantic period are in search of new subject matters, more emotional and are more expressive of their feelings as they are not bounded by structural rules in classical music where order, equilibrium, control and perfection are deemed important (Dorak, 2000). The characteristics of romantic music are influenced by the Romantic Movement, where the arts of literature and painting play a great role in influencing romantic music.
