Summary "What shall we call the era in Western music history from 1750 to 1900? Listeners and scholars alike treasure the works of its great composers: Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Wagner, Tchaikovsky. A powerfully symbolic name, though - analogous to "baroque" for the previous era - still eludes us. The Era after the Baroque proposes a powerful symbol for the new era while at the same time keeping traditional terminology intact. It looks at the age in a primarily positive manner while still acknowledging its darker aspects. In particular, it evokes the existence of a newly recognized system of "fine arts" and therefore has resonances for the visual and literary arts in addition to its primary focus on music."--BOOK JACKET.
