Music and Manners in France and Germany, Vol. 2 of 3: A Series of Travelling Sketches of Art and Society


` Music and Manners in France and Germany, Vol. 2 of 3: A Series of Travelling Sketches of Art and Society `Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a music lover in France and Germany in the nineteenth century? How did people enjoy opera, chamber music, or choral singing in different cities and venues? How did music reflect and shape the social and cultural trends of the time? If you are curious about these questions, you might want to read Music and Manners in France and Germany, a three-volume book by Henry Fothergill Chorley, a British journalist, critic, writer, and editor who specialized in music and literature. Chorley wrote this book based on his personal observations and experiences during his travels in Europe between 1839 and 1840. His aim was to "illustrate the present state of theatrical, orchestral, and chamber music abroad", focusing on aspects that would be least familiar to an English readership. In this article, we will summarize and review the second volume of his book, which covers music and society in France and Germany.
