by Ora Frishberg Saloman, Beethoven S Symphonies And J S Dwight Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Beethoven S Symphonies And J S Dwight book, John Sullivan Dwight (1813-1893), the first American critic of art music and the founder of Dwight's Journal of Music, set a new standard for musical criticism in the 1840s by fostering the American reception of Ludwig van Beethoven's then unfamiliar symphonies. Drawing upon extraordinary and painstaking research, Ora Frishberg Saloman details the progressive and influential musical vision of the young Dwight, offering a dramatic and long overdue corrective to the conservative image of the critic that has prevailed for most of this century.

Beethoven S Critics

by Robin Wallace, Beethoven S Critics Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Beethoven S Critics book, This 1990 book is a survey of the critical reaction to Beethoven's music as it appeared in the major musical journals, French as well as German, of his day, and represents the first published history of Beethoven reception. The author discusses the philosophical and analytical implications of these reviews and reassesses what has come to be the accepted view of a nineteenth-century musical aesthetics rooted in Romantic Idealism. Wallace sees Beethoven's critics as in fact providing a link between two apparently antithetical approaches to music: the eighteenth-century emphasis on expression and extra-musical interpretation and the nineteenth-century emphasis on 'absolute' music and formal analysis. This book thus provides, in addition to a carefully documented study of Beethoven's critical reception, a re-evaluation of his oeuvre and its significance in music history. An index of all reviews cited is provided, and a further appendix contains the quoted material in its original language.

Poetry And The Romantic Musical Aesthetic

by James H. Donelan, Poetry And The Romantic Musical Aesthetic Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Poetry And The Romantic Musical Aesthetic book, James H. Donelan describes how two poets, a philosopher and a composer – Hölderlin, Wordsworth, Hegel and Beethoven – developed an idea of self-consciousness based on music at the turn of the nineteenth century. This idea became an enduring cultural belief: the understanding of music as an ideal representation of the autonomous creative mind. Against a background of political and cultural upheaval, these four major figures – all born in 1770 – developed this idea in both metaphorical and actual musical structures, thereby establishing both the theory and the practice of asserting self-identity in music. Beethoven still carries the image of the heroic composer today; this book describes how it originated in both his music and in how others responded to him. Bringing together the fields of philosophy, musicology, and literary criticism, Donelan shows how this development emerged from the complex changes in European cultural life taking place between 1795 and 1831.

The Characteristic Symphony In The Age Of Haydn And Beethoven

by Richard Will, The Characteristic Symphony In The Age Of Haydn And Beethoven Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Characteristic Symphony In The Age Of Haydn And Beethoven book, Associated through descriptive texts with literature, politics, religion, and other subjects, 'characteristic' symphonies offer an opportunity to study instrumental music as it engages important social and political debates of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. This first full-length study of the genre illuminates the relationship between symphonies and their aesthetic and social contexts by focussing on the musical representation of feeling, human physical movement, and the passage of time. The works discussed include Beethoven's Pastoral and Eroica Symphonies, Haydn's Seven Last Words of our Savior on the Cross, Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf's symphonies on Ovid's Metamorphoses, and orchestral battle reenactments of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic eras. A separate chapter details the aesthetic context within which characteristic symphonies were conceived, as well as their subsequent reception, and a series of appendixes summarises bibliographic information for over 225 relevant examples.
