Is this quote correct, either YOUR representation or S-V's English? I'm struggling with this "of this tradition"

An investigation of improvisation in the Western tradition, therefore, would be more illuminating of this tradition if it concentrated not on what makes the periods that allowed for the practice of improvisation exceptional, but rather on what makes the short period that excluded it--roughly from the second half of the nineteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century—exceptional. (Sancho-Velázquez 2001, 83)

 

Is this really a correct quote: the "of this tradition" looks completely weird here

Schumann was in the midst of all of this musical practice that was completely saturated with improvisation, and I believe that this reality offers full justification for using his music as a starting point for practicing improvisation today.

 

The last part of this sentence (after "improvisation") has to be altered completely. NEVER use BELIEVE in a dissertation. It is not BELIEF, you have provided (or should provide) EVIDENCE, so you have ARGUED or PROVEN something. 

That it justifies what you write is outside of the context of this chapter and can thius be omitted
