Based almost entirely on unpublished ego documents (private correspondence, diaries, etc.), this book shows how nineteenth-century Dutch music lovers experienced music. The book covers aspects such as going to the opera, visiting public and (semi-) private concerts, the culture of listening, home music making (with special attention for the role of the piano in female music making), music festivals, the question of musical national identity, the furnishing of special music rooms as an expression of one's music preferences, and the rediscovery of early music and Bach's Matthew Passion.
