1. Edition 2011
Abhandlungen zur Musikgeschichte -
This volume deals with the music criticism and musical writings of the so-called Neudeutsche Schule. The term “Neudeutsche Schule” (New German School) is used for a loose circle of German and French composers including Richard Wagner, Hector Berlioz, Franz Liszt and, marginally at least, Robert Schumann and Hans von Bülow. Berenike Schröder analyses those writings of the New German School that deal with Beethoven’s work as well as texts referring to works by New German composers. The question of a progressive musical aesthetics in the New Germans School’s writings inspired by the memory of Beethoven is a central aspect. By analyzing the New Germans’ reception of Beethoven’s work this book also describes new strategies of transferring music into language that emerged around 1800.
