Franz Liszt and His World – Edited by Christopher H. Gibbs and Dana Gooley

Franz Liszt and His World – Edited by Christopher H. Gibbs and Dana Gooley Christopher H. Gibbs and Dana Gooley ( eds. ), Franz Liszt and His World ( Princeton, NJ, and Oxford : Princeton University Press , 2006 ). xx + 587 pp. £20.95. ISBN 10‐0‐691‐12902‐9 ( pb ). Franz Liszt and His World is a collection of essays that has its origins in the festival, focusing on one composer, which has been presented each year since 1990 by Bard College. The creation of its president (and also conductor of the orchestra), Leon Botstein, the Bard Music Festival is an opportunity to hear lesser‐known works and also to place the composer in a larger musical and social context. It is his concept of ‘thematic programming’– the bringing together of ideas from the arts, literature and history – that underlies the organisation of each Festival. Thus, in addition to the presentation of concerts, musicians and scholars are invited to give papers and take part in roundtable discussions; the result of this intensive process is often a new appreciation of even the best‐known figures. Brahms, Schumann and Scriabin have all been featured, Prokofiev is scheduled for 2008 and 2006 was devoted to Franz Liszt. It is the scholarly portion of the 2006 Festival, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Music Analysis Wiley

Abstract

Christopher H. Gibbs and Dana Gooley ( eds. ), Franz Liszt and His World ( Princeton, NJ, and Oxford : Princeton University Press , 2006 ). xx + 587 pp. £20.95. ISBN 10‐0‐691‐12902‐9 ( pb ).
