Riassunto: Turn-of-the-century modernists were involved, implicated, and often locked in a struggle with all the formidable legions of nineteenth-century music.
The focus of this collection, essays originally published in the journal "19th-Century Music, is upon modernism in relation to its immediate heritage. Major composers whose reflections on the past come under consideration include Debussy, Mahler, Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Bartok, and Ives, while older composers such as Liszt and Wolf figure as precursors of modernist harmony and sensibility. The contributors include many leading musicologists, critics, and music theorists known for their work on nineteenth- and twentieth-century music. Some of the essays deal closely with the new musical languages that evolved in that era; others deal with reception and performance issues. Many of them bring together insights from various subdisciplines to achieve a richer kind of composite scholarship than is available to traditional musical studies.
L'autore: Joseph Kerman, Professor of Music at the University of California, Berkeley, was a founding co-editor of 19th-Century Music in 1977. He is the author of several books, most recently Contemplating Music (1986); his classic Opera as Drama is now available from California in a revised edition.
