Schubert's Fingerprints: Studies in the Instrumental Works

Portada
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - 317 páginas
As Robert Schumann put it, 'Only few works are as clearly stamped with their author's imprint as his'. This book explores Schubert's stylistic traits in a series of chapters each discussing an individual 'fingerprint' with case-studies drawn principally from the piano and chamber music. Schubert emerges as someone exerting intellectual control over his musical material and imbuing it with poetic resonance.
