9780195393866: Rethinking Schumann

A provocative re-examination of a major romantic composer, Rethinking Schumann provides fresh approaches to Schumann's oeuvre and its reception from the perspectives of literature, visual arts, cultural history, performance studies, dance, and film. Traditionally, research has focused on biographical links between the composer and his music, encouraging the assumption that Schumann was solitary, divorced from reality, and frequently associated with "untimeliness." These eighteen new essays argue from a multitude of perspectives that Schumann was in fact very much a man of his time, informed not only by music but also the culture and society around him. The book further reveals that the composer's reputation has been shaped significantly by, for example, changes in attitudes towards German romanticism and its history, and recent developments in musical scholarship and performance. Rethinking Schumann takes into account cultural and social-institutional frameworks, engages with ongoing and new issues of reception and historiography, and offers fresh music-analytical insights. As a whole, the essays assemble a portrait of the artist that reflects the different ways in which Schumann has been understood and misunderstood over the past two hundred years. The volume is, in short, a timely reassessment of this ultimately non-untimely figure's legacy.

While the essays consider some of Schumann's most famous music (Dichterliebe, Kinderszenen and the Piano Quintet), they also provide crucial adjustment to judgments against the composer's later works by explaining their musical features not as the result of diminishing creative capacity but as reflections of the political and social situations of mid-nineteenth-century German culture and technological developments. Schumann is revealed to have been a musician engaged by and responsive to his surroundings, whose reputation was formed to a great extent by popular culture, both in his own lifetime as he responded to particular poets and painters, and later, as his life and works were responded to by subsequent generations.

Review:


"This volume does indeed manage to offer some significant 'rethinking' on Schumann, and even highlights more areas that could be researched by scholars to come...The only disappointment in such a collections of essays is when they finish." --Nineteenth-Century Music Review


"This splendid and inviting collection of essays by a stellar group of authors offers fresh insights into Schumann's later works and their reception. Its methodological diversity and thematic breadth represent the cutting edge of musical scholarship today."--Annegret Fauser, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


"A rewarding and readable collection of new Schumann scholarship that showcases current disciplinary perspectives. Historians, analysts, and cultural critics probe Schumann's music and his wide-ranging influence, paying special attention to lesser known dimensions of the composer's work. Included are eye-opening, exhilarating essays that we will turn to again and again." --Kristina Muxfeldt, Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University


"Contributors and editors alike have evidently strived to make this extraordinary, revelatory collection prima facie accessible." --Notes
