New Paths: Aspects of Music Theory and Aesthetics in the Age of Romanticism

New Paths: Aspects of Music Theory and Aesthetics in the Age of Romanticism (Collected Writings of the Orpheus Institute) by Darla Crispin
English | July 1, 2009 | ISBN: 9058677346 | 200 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

In New Paths, five renowned scholars discuss a variety of topics related to Romanticism, focusing especially on the years 1800–1840. In a much-needed historical and critical overview of the concept of organicism, John Neubauer ranges from its origins in Enlightenment biology to its aftermath in postmodernism. Janet Schmalfeldt shows that not only Beethoven's op.47 should be called the Bridgetower rather than the Kreutzer Sonata but also that this makes a difference as to its meaning.
Scott Burnham explains extreme contrasts between emotional and mechanical types of music in late Beethoven as stagings of the limits of human subjectivity. Jim Samson discusses Chopin's little-known musical upbringing in Warsaw, arguing that his grounding in eighteenth-century aesthetics (as opposed to theory) has thus far been neglected. Finally, Susan Youens's case study of Franz Lachner's Heine songs sheds light on radical experimentation by a so-called epigone in the period between Schubert and Schumann's miracle song year.
