A comprehensive overview of music in the nineteenth century

Edited by James Samson, with twenty-four chapters contributed by various persons.

Excerpt 1: the book focusses on issues that illuminate the subject in novel and interesting ways.

Excerpt 2: In Schelling’s System art shows what philosophy cannot finally say, namely how necessity and freedom can be understood as ultimately unified aspects of the same world. The work of art is in one respect an object in the world like any other: it is subject to causal laws and is therefore
conceptually identifiable, for example as a series of pitches of specifiable frequency and duration. At the same time, qua work of art, it is never finally determinable, because its significance cannot be exhausted by any classifying conceptual description.


The best way to refer to this work is probably to use SumatraPDF.
