    Print       Email

edited by Massimiliano Sala, Turnhout, Brepols, 2020 (Studies on Italian Music History, 14)

This volume investigates the figure of Luigi Cherubini, with the aim of providing a picture of the various faces that a composer and his output could present to European society at the turn of the nineteenth century; a society in which the composer, no longer tied to a patron or a court, tried to integrate himself as a participant in the labor market by finding new, coexisting forms of subsistence, thereby becoming a pre-eminent figure in the industrial and commercial world of the time.

Additionally, the volume aims to deepen understanding of the composer’s output in light of the political and social upheavals that took place during his long life, from French Revolution to the threshold of the Springtime of the People.
