Abstract

Recent years have seen a flurry of interest in the history of writing and thinking about music in the nineteenth century, including the histories of musicology, musical institutions, musical criticism, and music education. This is a welcome further development of the predominant focus on texts and documents within studies of music in nineteenth-century Britain, the speciality of editors Paul Watt, Sarah Collins, and Michael Allis. The Oxford Handbook of Music and Intellectual Culture in the Nineteenth Century follows a broader trend over several decades to situate music in its cultural context, drawing fully on the rich archival and documentary material available. This volume is both a very welcome account of that recent work and a showcase of substantial original research covering an impressive range of topics.
