It's time for another free SQUILT download.
The Romantic Era was full of beautiful, lush music. As we listened to Romantic Music in Classical Conversations last week, I told the children it's "kissy kissy" music. This era was all about the expression of intense emotions.
Many of the stories about the composers of this era are dramatic and exciting, too. Truth be told, this is probably my favorite time period of music.
Antonin Dvorak (pronounced "dvor-zhack"), born in 1841, was perhaps one of the most prominent composers of this era.
This free SQUILT download leads you and your children through Dvorak's Serenade for Strings, the 4th movement. (If you are in CC, you will notice this is the piece discussed in week 22 of Cycle 2.).
