Part of Cambridge Companions to Music
This "Companion to Schubert" examines the career, music, and reception of one of the most popular yet misunderstood and elusive composers. Sixteen chapters by leading Schubert scholars make up three parts. The first seeks to situate the social, cultural, and musical climate in which Schubert lived and worked, the second surveys the scope of his musical achievement, and the third charts the course of his reception from the perceptions of his contemporaries to the assessments of posterity. Myths and legends about Schubert the man are explored critically and the full range of his musical accomplishment is examined.
• This book provides a comprehensive reference book on Schubert and his music.
• There are few modern biographies or studies available
• The contributors constitute a star cast, including Charles Rosen, well known for his books on the 'Classical Style' and 'Sonata form'.
