Everyone loves romantic music: the sweet melody of a Schubert song, the heroine dying for love in an Italian opera, the swooning orchestration of a Tchaikovsky symphony.

This is an account of the whole phase in music history that has become the mainstay of the 20th and 21st century concert and operatic repertoire, with some little help from earlier times.
