Published in Spohrs 200th anniversary year, this book is the first to deal at length with both the life and the works of a composer who exerted a strong influence on the development of nineteenth-century music. Spohr was hailed in his own day as a worthy successor to Mozart and Beethoven, yet in the present century his former renown has gone largely unrecognised. Clive Brown gives an account of Spohrs life and character, and examines the areas in which his impact was most profound. He discusses Spohrs compositions critically and provides a stylistic and aesthetic assessment of his work. The chronological account of Spohrs life unfolds in parallel with the description of his musical output- a final chapter considers the decline of his reputation after his death. This volume will be of interest not only to scholars and students but also to general musical readers. And, since so little of Spohrs very substantial output is available in modern editions and is seldom performed, the book will also prove useful to practical musicians in search of worthwhile music for performance.
