The Romantic Era in the 19th century was a brilliant periodin the history of Western music. This set of stamps shows four musical giants in the early Romantic period: Schubert, Chopin, Liszt and Mahler.
Austrian composer Schubert was known as the ”King of Songs”, Polish musician Chopin was the ”Piano Poet”, Hungarian composer and pianist Liszt initiated the ”Symphonic poem”, and Austrian composer and conductor Mahler is called the ”Symphony master”.
Masterpieces by the four masters were full of humanistic spirit, emotion and the philosophy of life. They created many classic works that have been passed down to today.
