This book takes the themes and approaches of Professor Cyril Ehrlich's pathbreaking work on British social history in music as its inspiration. In sixteen substantial new essays, all specially commissioned from cultural and musical historians, it embraces the music marketplace, piano culture, musicians work patterns, music institutions and audiences, concert and repertoire history, issues in performance, criticism and reception, gender, and national and urban identities all with a clear focus on art music traditions (significantly under-treated by music scholars in this area). The cultural importance of serious music, from Belfast to Calcutta, has long been assumed for the period but rarely demonstrated. Here it is central, interwoven with the social and economic realities confronting music people in Britain across the 19th century.Revue de presse :
... well presented ... presents us with a series of articles all of which contain insights and material of value ... The most strikingly positive aspect of the book is the care, thought, and depth of research methodology exhibited by all the authors in their contributions. ( Nineteenth-Century Music Review)
... this book forms a worthy tribute to the work of Cyril Ehrlich and a valuable contribution which greatly furthers understanding of musical life in Britain in the nineteenth century. ( Nineteenth-Century Music Review)
insights which a general history would never provide ... likely to be a valuable source work for many years to come. ( BBC Music Magazine)
