The piano was the musical instrument of choice in the nineteenth century, emerging as a symbol of respectability, domesticity, and sentimentality. Yet as familiar as the nineteenth-century piano repertoire has become, recent scholarship has brought a new and exciting complexity to our understanding of the music. The book examines the current critical approaches to the scholarly reexamination of 19th-century solo piano music, focusing on the representative works of eight major composers. There are numerous musical examples throughout the book. Contents: · The piano & the 19th century - Leon Plantinga · Orthodoxies, paradoxes, & contradictions: Performance practices in 19th century piano music - Robert Winter · Beethoven - William Kinderman · The piano works of Schubert - Eva Badura-Skoda · In defense of Weber - Michael Tusa · Piano music reformed: the case of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy - R. Larry Todd · Hearing Poland: Chopin & nationalism - Jeffrey Kallberg · Schumann & the marketplace: from butterflies to Hausmusik - Anthony Newcomb · Brahms: from classical to modern - Walter Frisch · Expressive resonance in Liszt's piano music - Dolores Pesce
