Carl Dahlhaus here treats Nietzsche's youthful analysis of the contradictions in Wagner's doctrine (and, more generally, in romantic musical aesthetics); the question of periodicization in romantic and neo-romantic music; the underlying kinship between Brahms's and Wagner's responses to the central musical problems of their time; and the true significance of musical nationalism. Included in this volume is Walter Kauffman's translation of the previously unpublished fragment, "On Music and Words," by the young Nietzsche.

About the Author

In themselves, the topics he broaches are the concern of any literate musician; but the familiar terrain is surveyed as if for the first time, and every turn reveals original perspectives."--Roger Hollinrake, "Music and Letters
