How did the Romantic era hear the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, or Berlioz? What did it make of the Eroica, the Fantastic Symphony, or the eerie song Der Doppelgä nger? From many different vantage points this volume addresses this fascinating question. A group of writers, all historians of music theory, conducts a dazzling exploration of the way in which the Romantic era thought about music. They bring to bear on their topic issues from politics, gender, metaphor, intersubjectivity, cognition, and many other realms.
From the Publisher:
Twelve authors probe the mind of the Romantic era in its thinking about music. They provide a searching examination of writings by music theorists, critics, aestheticians, philosophers, and commentators from 1800 to 1875. In doing so, they wield new critical tools as well as old, casting fresh light, for example, on familiar problems of musical form by inspecting eighteenth-century rhetoric and nineteenth-century gendered discourse; exploring Schubertian modulation and Wagnerian motif with the insights of cognitive science; reinterpreting pianistic finger exercise by way of Michel Foucault and Frankenstein and so on. The impact of Hegel and Schelling on music theory occupies an important place, as does Schleiermacher's hermeneutics on analysis and criticism. The brilliant group of young historians of theory, represented here, provides an array of approaches, from detailed music analysis, through close reading of texts, through critical discourse, to philosophical enquiry.
