Description:

Anthology for Music in the Nineteenth Century, part of the Western Music in Context series, is the ideal companion to Music in the Nineteenth Century. Twenty-three carefully chosen works—including movements from a Beethoven quartet, excerpts from operas by Verdi and Bizet, piano music by Gottschalk, and a symphonic movement by Tchaikovsky—offer representative examples of genres and composers of the period. Commentaries following each score present a careful analysis of the music, and online links to purchase and download recordings make listening easier than ever.

Jean Beaufret (1907--1982) was an important reader and translator of Martin Heidegger's work and played a key role in Heidegger's reception in France. The four volumes of Dialogues avec Heidegger were published between 1974 and 1985.Martin Heidegger (1889--1975), who became famous for his theories of being and human nature, is considered one of the most original and influential philosophers of the 20th century.Mark Sinclair teaches at Manchester Metropolitan University.An American of Austrian birth, Arnold Schoenberg composed initially in a highly developed romantic style but eventually turned to painting and expressionism. At first he was influenced by Richard Wagner and tried to write in a Wagnerian style. He attracted the attention of Alban Berg and Anton von Webern, with whom he created a new compositional method based on using all 12 half-steps in each octave as an organizing principle, the so-called 12-tone technique. His importance to the development of twentieth-century music is incredible, but the music he composed using this new method is not easily accessible to most concertgoers.
