Love is pervasive in music, as it is in life. In the first volume in this series of Love and Passion in Music, the focus falls on instrumental and orchestral music. Whether in a tone poem, symphonic movement, ballet or film, composers depict the passions of love through melodic beauty and sumptuous or refined instrumentation.
The subject matter ranges from Orpheus to Dr Zhivago, from Spartacus to Cinderella, but the means remain the same: love depicted and evoked through pure music.
Contains works by Berlioz, Bizet, Debussy, Delibes, Donizetti, Elgar, Fibich, Glazunov, Gluck, Handel, Korngold, MacDowell, Mahler, Mascagni, Massenet, Minkus, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Steiner, Strauss, Tchaikovsky and Wagner.
