Oh, I knew how different they were, but I just get the names confused! J. S. Bach's lineage was similar for a few generations, I think. Tone poem... is that putting a story to music? I know Saint Saens did that with Danse Macabre (which I just played with my district orchestra!) I though Richard was later than Saint Saens, though...
I like studying music history, but my high school's program is so poor. I'd really like to go to a conservatory for college. Where do you go?
