Music in the Nineteenth Century - 13 edition

Music in the Nineteenth Century (ISBN10: 0393929191; ISBN13: 9780393929195)
ISBN13: 978-0393929195
ISBN10: 0393929191

Summary: 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 co
mmercial 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 sense-as sounds notated, performed, and heard-focusing not only on composers and works, but also on broader social and intellectual currents.
