""In a brilliant and original synthesis of developments in music, art, and literature, German Modernism offers an important new reading of the years of transition between Romanticism and Modernism. Frisch's study is essential reading for anyone interested in why and how twentieth-century music developed as it did."" ⿿Joseph Auner, editor of A Schoenberg Reader ""German Modernism is impressive for the author's wide-ranging historical treatment, which encompasses political, social, and cultural history with sovereign skill. With distinction, Walter Frisch reveals central aspects of the era between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, to which music historiography has increasingly ascribed a special profile as 'modern.' No less notable are the focused musical analyses that illuminate works from many different genres. In contrast to cultural history that remains ignorant of music, and musical analysis that pays no attention to social and historical context, this blend of interdisciplinary comprehensiveness and detailed musical analysis makes an exemplary impression.""⿿Hermann Danuser, Professor of Music, Humboldt University, Berlin ⿿A masterful exploration of music, literature, and visual arts⿦.Finally brings music into the discourse of modernism in a comprehensive, learned and sensitive manner. Provocative in the questions it raises, Frisch's study will become indispensable for further investigations into the nature of modernism⿝ ⿿Pamela Potter, School of Music, University of Wisconsin-Madison
