Cultivating Music

Author(s): David Gramit


German and Austrian music of the late 18th and 19th centuries stands at the heart of the Western musical canon. In this innovative study of various cultural practices (such as music journalism and scholarship, singing instruction and concerts), David Gramit examines how music became an important part of middle-class identity. He investigates historical discourses around such topics as the aesthetic debates over the social significance of folk music, various comparisons of the musical practices of ethnic "others" to the German "norm" and the establishment of the concert as a privileged site of cultural activity.
