About the Author

Carl Dahlhaus was, at the time of his death in 1989, Professor of Music at Technische Universitat Berlin.


In clear and graceful prose, the eminent professor of music at the Technische Universitat Berlin has gathered together the tendencies leading to 19th-century music and further articulated what we receive today as part and parcel of this music, placing it within its historical, social, literary, and geographic context. With penetrating examination, he has illumined and disentangled all the connections that make 19th-century music what it is, enlivening his points by the many pictorial and musical illustrations. An important book for its scholarship, sweep, and readability. Essential for music libraries.-- Philippa Kiraly, Cleveland

"Dahlhaus is frequently illuminating about major figures who have found less fame with posterity. . . . The learning is immense."--John Drummond, "Times Literary Supplement
