Paris in Frühjahr 1843. Briefe, Berichte und Schilderungen... Erster Band
by RELLSTAB, Ludwig 1799-1860
Leipzig: K.F. Köhler, 1844. "Rellstab's importance today, aside from being the author of poems for a handful of Schubert songs, lies in his music criticism, generally a conservative foil to more progressive voices... According to Wilhelm von Lenz, Rellstab was the first to refer to Beethoven's Piano Sonata op.27 no.2 in terms of moonlight: ‘a boat visiting, by moonlight, the primitive landscapes of Vierwaldstättersee in Switzerland'." Shelley Davis and Rufus Hallmark in Grove Music Online.. Octavo. Full dark purple patterned paper boards, original dark ivory upper wrapper bound in with titling within double-ruled border. 2ff., viii, 400 pp. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped.
