520    "The "Beethoven syndrome" is the inclination of listeners 
       to hear music as the projection of a composer's inner 
       self. This was a radically new way of listening that 
       emerged after Beethoven's death. Beethoven's music was a 
       catalyst for this change, but only in retrospect, for it 
       was not until after his death that listeners began to hear
       composers--and not just Beethoven--in their works, 
       particularly in their instrumental music. The Beethoven 
       syndrome: hearing music as autobiography traces the rise, 
       fall, and persistence of this mode of listening from the 
       middle of the eighteenth century to the present. Prior to 
       1830, composers and audiences alike operated within a 
       framework of rhetoric in which the burden of 
       intelligibility lay squarely on the composer, whose task 
       it was to move listeners in a calculated way. But through 
       a confluence of musical, philosophical, social, and 
       economic changes, the paradigm of expressive objectivity 
       gave way to one of subjectivity in the years around 1830. 
       The framework of rhetoric thus yielded to a framework of 
       hermeneutics: concert-goers no longer perceived composers 
       as orators but as oracles to be deciphered. In the wake of
       World War I, however, the aesthetics of 'new objectivity' 
       marked a return not only to certain stylistic features of 
       eighteenth-century music but also to the earlier concept 
       of expression itself. Objectivity would become the 
       cornerstone of the high modernist aesthetic that dominated
       the century's middle decades. Masterfully citing a broad 
       array of source material from composers, critics, 
       theorists, and philosophers, Mark Evan Bonds's engaging 
       study reveals how perceptions of subjective expression 
       have endured, leading to the present era of mixed and 
       often conflicting paradigms of listening"--Dust jacket
