Schumann's late style

Author: Laura Tunbridge
Publisher: Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2007.
Edition/Format:   Book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
There are many reasons why Robert Schumann's late style of the 1850s has been considered of little musical value, the reason most often given suggesting that his mental illness affected his work. This book attempts to disentangle such assumptions and considers Schumann's style in broader artistic, social and cultural contexts.
