The nineteenth century has been described as the age of the periodical, for good reason. Periodicals were published in large and small formats and in varying quantities; despite their size or circulation, they reached local, national, and global readerships. Most writers were paid on a freelance basis, but those who had achieved a modicum of fame were salaried writers who contributed to the prestige of the periodical. Critics were also mobile and traveled across Europe, to the Americas, and to Australasia, or their articles were sent across the seas by telegraph or shipped in crates to the furthermost outposts of the world, as public libraries and universities were established. This chapter examines a number little and large magazines and periodicals and anthologies to probe the varied intellectual life of music in the nineteenth century to show how ideas about music shifted across seas and continents.
