Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto

Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto

A different perspective is seen in the reviews of Robert Schumann in his Neue Zeietschrift für Musik.

In the early nineteenth century, seven composers experimented with the design of the piano concerto at roughly the same time. Two mature figures - Johann Baptist Cramer and Carl Maria von Weber - and five young firebrands - Felix Mendelssohn, Valentin Alkan, Clara Wieck, Robert Schumann and Franz Liszt - probed the possibilities and challenged the traditions of the genre regarded as problematic, and even anachronistic by the 1830s. Lindeman considers each composer's approach to concerto form in a lucid and engaging account. He then pairs this with an analysis of their concertos, including a combination of LaRue timelines and Schenkerian techniques that is logical and insightful. A different perspective is seen in the reviews of Robert Schumann in his Neue Zeietschrift für Musik. The critic's profound dismay with the state of the noble genre is apparent in his reviews of concertos by the Parisian virtuoisi, which he regarded with particular disdain. Lindeman's overview reveals that Schumann's criticism offers a touchstone for the reformulation of the genre in the experimental works of the seven composers. Lindeman's book includes measure-by-measure timeline analyses of the first movements of over 100 concertos. Included are all those of Mozart, Cramer, Beethoven, Hummel, Weber, Field, Moscheles, Alkan, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Wieck, Schumann, and Liszt, plus examples by Sterndale Bennett, Boiëldieu, Burgmüller, Czerny, Dussek, Ries, and Steibelt. Structural Novelty and Tradition in the Early Romantic Piano Concerto offers the first detailed examination of a critical time in the development of the form. It is an indispensable reference tool for anyone interested in the piano concerto genre.

"Dreams of Love: Playing the Romantic Pianist explores the attractions of the concert pianist from an innovative interdisciplinary perspective, demonstrating how such meanings have evolved over two centuries through technology and the popular media, including literature and cinema. Author Ivan Raykoff uses romantic both as the label for a historical era and musical style, as well as the more colloquial adjective referring to love, desire, and sensual feeling. Through this two-fold interpretive approach, music history and cultural mythology are read alongside one another to reveal the interconnected processes of music's social mediation. The word playing also invites multiple readings: performance or practicing, as pastime or profession, as play-acting and other modes of representation, or reproduction like a player piano. The Romantic pianist signifies more than just music; through established rituals and familiar representations of practicing, performing, and listening, the pianist also plays within a larger system of cultural ideology linking music to aspects of gender, sexuality, personal identity and social relationships, and the politics of the body."
