Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A revised version of the author's Ph.D. dissertation (U. of London, 1991), Biddlecombe first addresses broad cultural issues, and then analyzes the main composers of the period , primarily in terms of the musical styles they espoused. While once enjoying great popularity (Balfe, the most prolific of the group, acquired considerable international fame), the esteem in which these composers were held began to decline by the turn of the century, a development that Biddlecombe relates to the growing enthusiasm for German music, especially Wagnerism. Includes many musical examples.
