Artikelomschrijving

Nineteenth-century music in its cultural, social, and intellectual contexts. Music in the Nineteenth Century examines the period from the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to the advent of Modernism in the 1890s. Frisch traces a complex web of relationships involving composers, performers, publishers, notated scores, oral traditions, audiences, institutions, cities, and nations. The book's central themes include middle-class involvement in music, the rich but elusive concept of Romanticism, the cult of virtuosity, and the ever-changing balance between musical and commercial interests. The final chapter considers the sound world of nineteenth-century music as captured by contemporary witnesses and early recordings. Western Music in Context: A Norton History comprises six volumes of moderate length, each written in an engaging style by a recognized expert. Authoritative and current, the series examines music in the broadest senseùas sounds notated, performed, and heardùfocusing not only on composers and works, but also on broader social and intellectual currents. Please note that this version of the ebook does not include access to any media or print supplements that are sold packaged with the printed book.
