Product Description

Review

"Davies narrating incidents and tracing connections is full of animation and amusement . . . a master of the anecdote and incident."--Stephen Brown"Times Literary Supplement" (04/03/2015)

From the Inside Flap

This book presents a brilliant cultural history of musical performance in the first half of the nineteenth century. Taking an original approach to the study of virtuosity, Davies uses a rich set of primary sources, both medical and musical, to conjure a new history of the music-making body, of sound and its physical production.
Annette Richards, author of "The Free Fantasia and the Musical Picturesque"
Through a focus on performersor, more specifically, on their voices and handsJames Davies offers a material rethinking of musical romanticism that casts well-known figures such as Chopin, Liszt, and Malibran in a striking new light, along with others much less familiar yet just as central to the preoccupations of the time. In both its rich detail and its overarching themes, this book sets a new standard for writing the cultural history of nineteenth-century music.
Benjamin Walton, author of "Rossini in Restoration Paris: The Sound of Modern Life""
