First published in 1990, this book was the first comprehensive
study of Balzac's relationship to music, blending past scholarship
with new perspectives to formulate an inclusive account. It begins
by examining the contacts and experiences that shaped the musical
side of Balzac's life. These left valuable and lasting impressions
which often found their way into his writings, where he recorded a
myriad of critical and musicological opinions - assessed primarily
in relation to Gambara and Massimilla Doni. These discussions
prepare the way for an analysis of Balzac two major musical
persuasions: religious music and Beethoven. This book will be of
interest to students of literature and music.
