The Cambridge Companion to Schubert Paperback
Edited by Christopher H. Gibbs
Part of the Cambridge Companions to Music series
This Companion to Schubert examines the career, music, and reception of one of the most popular yet misunderstood and elusive composers.
Sixteen chapters by leading Schubert scholars make up three parts.
The first seeks to situate the social, cultural, and musical climate in which Schubert lived and worked, the second surveys the scope of his musical achievement, and the third charts the course of his reception from the perceptions of his contemporaries to the assessments of posterity.
Myths and legends about Schubert the man are explored critically and the full range of his musical accomplishment is examined.
