Schumann's Eichendorff Liederkreis and the Genre of the Romantic Cycle

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, Nov 30, 2000 - Music - 288 pages
2 Reviews
This new study draws on analysis, literary criticism, and source studies to propose a new conception of the nineteenth-century romantic cycle. Rather than a unified whole, the cycle is seen as a fragmentary and open-ended form, which enables Schumann to express the romantic themes of transcendence and ineffability in musical terms.
