Lord Kenneth Clark 'Civilization' (P.13)
'Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive' wrote Wordsworth of the early days of the French Revolution, but the storming of the Bastille led not to freedom but to the Terror.

Kenneth Clark traces the progressive disillusionment of the artists of the Romantic movement through the music of Beethoven, the poetry of Byron and the sculpture of Rodin.

No one could pull this series off today.

Richard Tjäder

We should defy all those forces that threaten to impair our humanity... yes, indeed

Apparently the list of music omits Beethoven's Leonore Overture #3 at the beginning.
