The relationship between folk music and European classical music is complex, several composers have been noted for their use of expressly folk melodies or themes, as well as research into enthno-musicology.
The era of Romantic music is defined as the period of Europeanclassicalmusic that runs roughly from the early 1800s to the first decade of the 20th century, as well as music written according to the norms and styles of that period.
Composers modulated to increasingly remote keys, and modulations were often less extensively prepared than in the classical era; sometimes, instead of a pivot chord, a pivot note was used.
Romantic composers were aided by improvements in technology, which provided significant changes in the language of music, ranging from an increase in the range and power of the piano to improvements in the sound and reach of the symphony orchestra.
