Romantic Piano GCSE & A Level Lecture

How do you tell the difference between Classical and Romantic piano writing? What features might define a Classical concerto by Mozart vs. a Romantic concerto by Clara Schumann? 

GCSE and A Level students enjoyed time discussing these questions with Dr Carrasco in a lecture on the Romantic piano today. Dr Carrasco performed piano repertoire from across the ages and helped students see the mechanical, technical and compositional innovations that made the piano our most popular classical concerto instrument.
