Book Description In 1700, most composers were employees of noble courts or the church But by the nineteenth century, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Verdi, and many others functioned as freelance artists teachingахфшш, performing, and selling their compositions in the private marketplace While some believe that Mozart's career marks a clean break between these two periods, this new book tells the story of a more complex and interesting transition F M Scherer first examines theбеымя political, intellectual, and economic roots of the shift from patronage to a freelance market He describes the eighteenth-century cultural "arms race" among noble courts, the spread of private concert halls and opera houses, the increasing attendance of middle-class music lovers, and the founding of conservatories He analyzes changing trends in how composers acquired their skills and earned their living, examining such impacts as demographic developments and new modes of бпбйфtransportation The book offers insight into the diversity of composers' economic aspirations, the strategies through which they pursued success, the burgeoning music publishing industry, and the emergence of copyright protection Scherer concludes by drawing some parallels to the economic state of music composition in our own times Written by a leading economist with an unusually broad knowledge of music, this fascinating account is directed toward individuals intrigued by the world of classical composers as well as those interested in economic history or the role of money in art.
