About this item

Neubauer explores the intertwined cross-currents between music and literary culture in the Romantic 19th century, linking fields such as musical criticism, musical novellas, the romanticization of the driven virtuoso, music-critical historicism in the period of nationalizing states, and the challenges posed to the Romantic composers by the idealization of the oral bedrock of vernacular-national cultures. He covers the music journals, from poetry to music novels, failing musicians and failed education, serialized novellas, narrating listeners and instruments, from journals to battles, music histories: from gossip to nationalism, speech and song, vocal authority, "write as you speak"--in Serbian, and contra-facts from the British Isles.
