" The foundation of Romantic period thus coincides with what is often called the "age of revolutions", an age of upheavals in political, economic, social and military traditions. This age that witnessed the initial transformations of the Industrial Revolution. A revolutionary energy was also at the core of Romanticism, which quite consciously set out to transform not only the theory and practice of poetry (and all art), but the very way we perceive the world. Some of its major precepts have survived into the twentieth century and still affect our contemporary period".

Famous quotes containing the words musicians and/or romantic:
“Music is of two kinds: one petty, poor, second-rate, never varying, its base the hundred or so phrasings which all musicians understand, a babbling which is more or less pleasant, the life that most composers live.”
“Treading the soil of the moon, palpating its pebbles, tasting the panic and splendor of the event, feeling in the pit of ones stomach the separation from terra ... these form the most romantic sensation an explorer has ever known ... this is the only thing I can say about the matter. The utilitarian results do not interest me.”
