Format: Paperback
Expertly compiled and edited by Beate Perry, "The Cambridge Companion to Schumann" is an up-to-date introduction showcasing the work of nineteenth and twentieth-century classical composer Robert Schumann. An anthology of essays by learned authors discuss topics ranging from "Life and literature, poetry and philosophy: Robert Schumann's aesthetics of music" to "Novel symphonies and dramatic overtures", while other in-depth discussions of Schumann's musical works include "Schumann in his time and since." A very highly recommended, essential addition to academic and university music department reference collections, "The Cambridge Companion to Schumann" is enhanced with extensive notes, an index, and a few measures of musical notation round out this scholarly guide to the works and philosophies of a musical genius.
