The New Oxford History of Music is complete This latest and last volume: * completes the set of The New Oxford History of Music in 10 volumes * includes the whole span of western instrumental music and opera in the greater part of the nineteenth century * is edited by one of the most respected scholars of nineteenth-century music In March 1830 Goethe complained to Eckermann that `everybody talks now about Classicism and Romanticism - which no one thought of fifty years ago'. Romanticism - a concept more easily recognized than defined - was the prevailing spirit of the vast outpouring of music in the sixty years chronicled in this volume. The list of major composers treated either wholly or in part will serve as an indication of its scope: Chopin, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Brahms, Berlioz, Donizetti, Verdi, Wagner, Gounod, Bizet, Borodin, Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Dvorak, Smetana, Faure, Wolf, Puccini, Bruckner, Mahler, Strauss, Cesar Franck, Debussy. Contributors: Gerald Abraham, John Horton, David Charlton, David Kimbell, Siegfried Goslich, Nicholas Temperly, Willi Kahl, Arnold Whittall, Julian Budden, Robert Pascall, Leslie Orrey, David Tunley, Edward Garden, Rosemary Hunt, and John Clapham.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`It is sad that Gerald Abraham did not live to see the last volume published; but his guiding hand and scholarship mark it strongly. His survey has a magisterial ease.' Times Literary Supplement
`The New Oxford History of Music is completed in a blaze of suitably Wagnerian glory with the publication of its missing link, the volume on Romanticism covering the years 1830 to 1890...there is plenty of food for thought here ...OUP is to be congratulated on completing the most satisfying history of music on offer.' Musical Times
