Jon W. Finson


Nineteenth-Century Music: The Western Classical Traditionprovides a guide to the basic literature of European art music from which we still draw the majority of our repertory in modern concert halls and opera theaters. The study explores standard works by composers such as Beethoven, Schubert, Rossini, Bellini, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Berlioz, Wagner, Verdi, Bizet, Brahms, Strauss, Franck, Musorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Dvofdk, Mahler, and Puccini, tracing the various artistic threads woven through Western music between 1800 and 1900. Frequent and detailed tables serve readers as guides to examination of musical scores from this period or as roadmaps to listening, and the text provides relevant biographical background on the composers whose work we most often enjoy today. Students will find this history to be a succinct and accessible introduction to a central period in Western classical music, and other readers may enjoy its concise summary of the nineteenth century's musical milieu.Jon W. Finson is the author of 'Nineteenth-Century Music: The Western Classical Tradition', published 2001 under ISBN 9780139271793 and ISBN 0139271791.
