    schema:reviewBody ""The collection of essays presented here offers a portrayal of concert life in Britain that contributes greatly to the wider understanding of social and cultural life in the eighteenth century. All the essays taken together construct an understanding of musical communities and the origins of the modern concert system. This is achieved by focusing on the development of music societies; the promotion of musical events; the mobility and advancement of musicians; systems of patronage; the social status of musicians; the repertoire preformed and published; the role of women pianists and the 'topography' of concerts. In this way the book will appeal not only to music specialists, but also to social and cultural historians."--Jacket." ;
