"Deeply thoughtful and hugely challenging, insightful and inciteful, these essays throw brilliant prismatic light on Schubert's indispensable oeuvre. They untangle the thorny paradox of an individual style that furnished the pivot for a crucial juncture in music history." - Scott Messing, author of Schubert in the European Imagination and Marching to the Canon: The Life of Schubert's Marche militaire "
"This stirringly diverse collection of essays brings the recent surge of Schubert scholarship to its first full flood. With an international and intergenerational abundance of perspective, Rethinking Schubert encourages the sense that we are just now beginning to discern the impact and range of this miraculously multidimensional composer." - Scott Burnham, Princeton University "
"Inspired by the music of Schubert and the man himself, the contexts and riddling controversies promised in the title of this rich collection are engaged here in a range of brilliant rethinkings, from a brace of fresh theoretical constructs to the seasoned insights of time-honored Schubertians. A signal contribution among the busy competition." Richard Kramer, Author of Unfinished Music and Distant Cycles: Schubert and the Conceiving of Song "
