Book description

The Cambridge Companion to Chopin provides the enquiring music-lover with helpful insights into a musical style which recognises no contradiction between the accessible and the sophisticated, the popular and the significant. Twelve essays by leading Chopin scholars make up three parts. Part 1 discusses the sources of Chopin's style in the music of his predecessors and the social history of the period. Part 2 profiles the mature music, and Part 3 considers the afterlife of the music - its reception, its criticism and its compositional influence in the works of subsequent composers.

Reviews

‘… strongly recommended to students, teachers, and researchers. Non-specialists will find useful and reliable introductions to various facets of Chopin’s life and music while specialists will encounter provocative viewpoints in a number of contributions.’

Source: Notes

‘… highly recommended to anybody seeking an easily digestible yet informative overview of Chopin the man, his music, and his public.’

Susan Bradshaw Source: The Musical Times
