The Austrian lands have been at the heart of European musical development for many centuries – with ‘Viennese schools’ both classical and modernist, and thriving traditions of folk and popular music. Spanning a historical period ‘from Haydn to Haider’, and including Mozart, Schubert, Janáček, Mahler and Schoenberg, the essays in this volume explore a range of the ways in which music interacts with the written word in Austria, in song settings, operas and anthems, in personal and critical responses to performance, and in literary explorations of music, musicians or musical forms.
