Rethinking Schubert: Contexts and Controversies

(p.1) Introduction
Rethinking Schubert

Lorraine Byrne Bodley

Oxford University Press

The past several years have witnessed a decisive flowering of Schubert scholarship in diverse areas of musical research. Our understanding of Schubert’s habits of text setting, and of his music’s reception and its historical circumstances, has been substantially enhanced. No less encouraging is the centrality of Schubert’s music to the burgeoning theoretical and analytical literature on nineteenth-century harmony and form. In all, Schubert’s importance for the present condition of musical scholarship is hard to overstate. This Introduction situates the contributions in Rethinking Schubert within this recent history. Drawing together the various threads of commentary that the book affords, we offer a comparative account of the sustained fascination the composer’s music exerts over the twin domains of musicology and music theory, and a prognosis for the future progress of research.

Keywords:   Schubert’s late style, nineteenth-century harmony and form, Schubert’s importance in music theory and musicology, Reception history, Schubert and analysis, Text setting
