Editorial Reviews


"Few writers succeed in the elusive pursuit of describing music as a cultural phenomenon. Carl Dahlhaus is one of these. His works dealing with the social and cultural aspects of music in the nineteenth century are exemplary specimens of cultural history. His four studies contained in the present volume are united by a common theme. He describes how certain composers of the late nineteenth century are related to that century's idealization of the individual artist as creator and hero." -- Conrad L. Donakowski, Queen's Quarterly

"[Between Romanticism and Modernism] is more comprehensive in scope than its modest size and essayistic style disclose at first sight; while on the vexed question of historical method it makes, both in theory and in practice, a pronouncement of policy that goes beyond the confines of belles-lettres. . . . In themselves, the topics he broaches are the concern of any literate musician; but the familiar terrain is surveyed as if for the first time, and every turn reveals original perspectives." -- Roger Hollinrake, Music and Letters --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
