Product Description

Review

'How pleasing to see that the lied merits its own volume in this attractively presented series from CUP' The Schubertian

'… a fine addition to the material written on this subject, and I do recommend it highly.' Piano Professional

Product Description

Beginning several generations before Schubert, the Lied first appears as domestic entertainment. In the century that follows it becomes one of the primary modes of music-making. By the time German song comes to its presumed conclusion with Richard Strauss's 1948 Vier letzte Lieder, this rich repertoire has moved beyond the home and keyboard accompaniment to the symphony hall. This is a 2004 introductory chronicle of this fascinating genre. In essays by eminent scholars, this Companion places the Lied in its full context - at once musical, literary, and cultural - with chapters devoted to focal composers as well as important issues, such as the way in which the Lied influenced other musical genres, its use as a musical commodity, and issues of performance. The volume is framed by a detailed chronology of German music and poetry from the late 1730s to the present and also contains a comprehensive bibliography.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEUTSCHER KULTUR... 30 Dec. 2004
By B.E.F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A fine guide, but note: it treats the German lied exclusively--not a word here about the French melodie--which is a lied sung in Paris, rather than Munich!
