Book description

This Companion to Schubert examines the career, music, and reception of one of the most popular yet misunderstood and elusive composers. Sixteen chapters by leading Schubert scholars make up three parts. The first seeks to situate the social, cultural, and musical climate in which Schubert lived and worked, the second surveys the scope of his musical achievement, and the third charts the course of his reception from the perceptions of his contemporaries to the assessments of posterity. Myths and legends about Schubert the man are explored critically and the full range of his musical accomplishment is examined.


‘… it was a pleasure to encounter The Cambridge Companion to Schubert which featured analytical essays on each facet of the composer and his music … It is books like this one that allow readers of today to know Schubert better than those of his own era.’

Source: Scenaria

‘Like its siblings in this admirable and authoritative series, this book ranges far and wide … this is a book from which no serious Schubertian can fail to derive some benefit.’
