From the Publisher
"...outstanding in both its breadth and depth. Garratt demonstrates an impressive command of not only the history of music and its institutions, but also of German Romantic literature and philosophy. He expresses his ideas with clarity and sophistication. ...a welcome addition to the collection of academic music libraries." Notes

"Through systematic investigation, thorough examination, and lucid presentation, Garratt contributes a much-needed reevalution of a corpus of music historiography that long deserved attention." German Studies Review
