From the Romantic Age.... 8 Jun 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This volume was originally published in 1959, and includes updated versions of discographies that were written for "High Fidelity" magazine by the author. Mr. Schonberg gives a biographical sketch of both Frederic Chopin and Robert Schumann. For Chopin, the author gives discographies as of 1959 for his Piano and Orchestral Works, Solo Piano Works, Chamber Music, and Songs. For Schumann, he gives discographies as of 1959 for his Concertos, Works for Solo Instrument and Orchestra, Orchestral Works, Chamber Music, Piano Works, Vocal Works, and Melodrama. Should you buy this book? It is arcane information for the serious or professional collector. If you are like me, recordings through the decades are fascinating for their subtle (and not subtle!) differences. Mr. Schonberg has an obvious love for the composers and their works -- it shows.
