Maestro Thomas Shoebotham continues our survey of orchestral history with the changes occurring during the Romantic period (roughly 1830 to the early 20th century), when the orchestra became an even greater force due to its increasing size.  Romantic symphonies utilized a much broader range of instruments than Classical symphonies, especially in the bass, woodwind, and percussion sections, allowing composers to make ever greater demands on the orchestra.
