Following the success of Chopin Studies, this second volume of essays contains the most recent Chopin research of twelve leading scholars. Three main themes are addressed: reception history, aesthetics and criticism, and performance studies. The essays explore Chopin as classical composer, as salon composer, as modernist, as qotherworldly, q as androgyne, and define aspects of his musical language, including narrative structures, progressive tendencies and functional ambiguity.This new collection targets three main areas of research--reception history, aesthetics and criticism, and performance studies--although the boundaries between these are by no means tightly drawn.
