History of Classical Music

Piano Music

(Romantic 8)
Music for piano flourished throughout the Romantic period. Many forms of piano pieces evolved, including the miniature. Romantic miniatures such as the nocturne, impromptu, etude, and ballade become extremly popular, as they were short , easy to listen to, and they concentrated on one single musical idea.

Frederic Chopin is perhaps the most famous of all Romantic composers for the piano. An example of his work is the Ballade in G minor.
