Synopsis

This only work to date to examine how the French homme de lettres, Camille Mauclair (1872-1945) made a significant contribution to the musical education of the Parisian public at the end of the nineteenth century. In French. This work highlights the process by which Mauclair's musical aesthetic was shaped by both symbolist ideals and ideas based on beliefs expounded by Schopenhauer, Wagner and Bergson. Along with demonstrating the musicality which emerges in his fiction and is consolidated in his texts on music, the book also emphasizes his international spirit with relation to his broad appreciation of European music. Throughout the text, the particular writing style Mauclair uses to describe musical matters is examined. It is a style that eventually throws him into conflict with the newly emerging Parisian musicologists. Not only does this highly documented book provide a valuable resource for scholars working in both the literary and musical areas, but it will also be of general interest to the present day reader as it provides a 'keyhole' view of Parisian life at the turn of the century, as recorded by one of its most ardent writers, Camille Mauclair.
