With new technical styles come new forms of music which became evident in the Romantic Period. Changing from the Classical Music Period, the Romantic Musical Period’s stylistic techniques were deeply emotional. The composers of the time expressed freely their personal feelings which were profoundly influenced by the ideals of the French Revolution, including freedom, fraternity and independence. Also, new and improved instruments were invented and utilized during this time. With warm melodies and long lyrical passages, Romantic composers were able to lead people do love their music.

After years of domination, the general public was now ready to absorb themselves in expressive freedom.

Poetry and literature of the early nineteen century was filled with strong emotion and this was hard to produce in a musical form. Improvement to musical instruments allowed composers to express these feelings with new techniques.
