After the Golden Age

Kenneth Hamilton

Oxford University Press

This chapter uncovers the roots of the myth of a pianistic golden age in the 19th- and early 20th-centuries, along with offering a preliminary discussion of national performance styles, and the influence of Beethoven, Czerny, Liszt, and Chopin. The vexed claim of a “continuous performance tradition” is analysed and shown to be erroneous.

Keywords:   pianistic great tradition, national performance-styles, Beethoven, Czerny, Liszt, Chopin
