Romantic Musicians:

According to Britannica “Musical Romanticism was marked by emphasis on originality and individuality, personal emotional expression, and freedom and experimentation of form”. Ludwig van Beethoven developed from classicism into romanticism and it covered much of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth culminating with the vast or emotional works of such late romantics as Gustav Mahler.
