Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Stephen Walsh, Emeritus Professor of Music at Cardiff University, to discuss his book, The Beloved Vision: A History of Nineteenth Century Music. They chat about the music of the nineteenth century and the Romantic tradition and how it has moved generations of musicians and resonated with countless listeners. They also talk about the ideas that lay behind Romanticism and how Romantic music has become the mainstay of the twentieth and twenty-first century concert and operatic repertoire.
