This work puts together a collection of essays by distinguished writers to give an instructive overview of nineteenth-century music. The authors quote and analyse some of the most widely known pieces of that period, in a study that focuses on Beethoven, Schumann, Berlioz, Brahms, Liszt and Schubert, yet includes and refers to many more. The web of pieces and discussions create a fascinating and vast examination of the styles and tonal techniques of nineteenth-century composers to devise music of farther-reaching power and drama.

This volume is part of a vast collection of fourteen volumes on the history of Western Music. Purchase three volumes of the collection in one set! Volume 9, 10: Twentieth-Century Music, and 14: Approaches to Tonal Analysis, are available as a set.
