  • The Sounds of Ephrata: Developing a Research Methodology to Catalog and
           Study Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Pennsylvanian Music Manuscripts
    • Abstract: A corpus of at least 135 illuminated music manuscripts1 from the Ephrata and Snow Hill communities can be definitively classified as American, and specifically Pennsylvanian. These manuscripts have been studied by a mere handful of scholars, only three of whom are musicologists. During this past year, I had the opportunity to study them toward work on my dissertation; one result of the study is a descriptive catalog of these manuscripts, with specific attention paid to their content, form, and function.Some scholars learn of Ephrata and Snow Hill music manuscripts by way of Thomas Mann's Doktor Faustus. Mann's narrative makes reference to Conrad Beissel (1691–1768), the founder of Ephrata. Mann quite accurately ... Read More

  • The National Union Catalog, Pre-1956 Imprints as a Primary Source for
           Historical Research in Music
    • Abstract: The National Union Catalog, Pre-1956 Imprints (NUC)1 was once a staple of library collections, serving as a major tool for interlibrary loan and bibliographical functions. After surveying the historical use of the NUC as a tool toward locating other resources, this article will examine how the NUC might serve as a primary source in and of itself. The library holdings for the four string quartets by Arnold Schoenberg that were published during his lifetime are the focus of this study. With dates of first publication ranging from 1905 to 1936, the quartets include both tonal and twelve-tone music, with three works composed and published in Europe and one in the United States. The differences between these works allow ... Read More

  • Prices of Music Monographs and Scores as Reflected in Notes,
           2012–2018
    • Abstract: Perusing the numbers and charts of monographs and music scores received by Notes makes clear that the music publishing industry is still fairly robust, at least in terms of sheer numbers. Looking at scores, note that the charts reflect prices, which appear to have remained fairly flat since 2012. The number of items for all scores, which appears in the caption of the chart, is higher than any of the previous years represented. The data look different for books, where the number published is moving up after a significant decline and the price shows a pronounced upward trend. All of this could have to do with publishers' practices in terms of sending copies to Notes, so we cannot consider it a complete data set.One ... Read More

  • Notes for Notes
    • Abstract: The Music and Performing Arts Library (MPAL) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is pleased to announce that the approximately 800 microfilms that comprise the source corpus for the Hymn Tune Index are at long last being cataloged and added to MPAL's Special Collections due to a grant from the University Library's Robert and Kay Merrick Family Endowment Fund. The Hymn Tune Index, which exists in print and online formats (http://hymntune.library.illinois.edu/), is authored by Nicholas Temperley, professor emeritus at the School of Music. The index contains all hymn tunes with English-language texts printed anywhere in the world up to 1820. The microfilm collection, used by Temperley to create the ... Read More

  • The Montpellier Codex: The Final Fascicle; Contents, Contexts,
           Chronologies ed. by Catherine A. Bradley and Karen Desmond (review)
    • Abstract: In 2014, a two-day conference was held at St. Hugh's College, University of Oxford. Organized by Catherine A. Bradley, Karen Desmond, and Elizabeth Eva Leach, the event was dedicated to the eighth and last fascicle of the manuscript known commonly as the Montpellier Codex (Montpellier, Bibliothèque Interuniversitaire, Section Médecine, H. 196; hereafter Mo). This beautifully decorated manuscript is also the largest surviving collection of medieval motets and is of significant interest to musicologists, performers, and other medieval historians. The bulk of Mo is believed to have been copied in Paris, likely around the 1270s. Yet its eighth fascicle (hereafter Mo8) is not so clear-cut. With all the benefits and ... Read More

    • Abstract: The boundaries called into question by these fifteen essays range from societal constructs (class, gender, religion, profession, genre) to concepts of media (aural/oral, manuscript, print) and space (home, stage, court, church, street). As a collection, the book provides a broad survey of ways in which music and musicians in England negotiated these boundaries circa 1550–1800. In their introduction, Linda Phyllis Austern, Candace Bailey, and Amanda Eubanks Winkler discuss how this project developed partly out of frustration with the application of anachronistic dichotomies, such as public/private and professional/amateur, in historical narratives of early modern English music. These and other categorical ... Read More

  • Mozart in Vienna: The Final Decade by Simon P. Keefe (review)
    • Abstract: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, like practically all composers during the 1700s, was also a performer. In Mozart's case, he was one of the most highly regarded keyboardists in Europe, particularly renowned for his improvisations—an activity that fuses music creation with performance. To quote one of Mozart's early biographers, Franz Niemetschek: "We did not know what we should admire most … the extraordinary compositions, or the extraordinary playing" (Wir wußten in der That nicht, was wir mehr bewundern sollten, ob die ausserordentliche Komposition, oder das ausferordentliche Spiel; p. 9 [Keefe's translation], quoted from Franz Niemetschek, Leben des K. K. Kapellmeisters Wolfgang Gottlieb Mozart [Prague, 1798; repr. ... Read More

  • Varieties of Musical Irony: From Mozart to Mahler by Michael Cherlin
           (review)
    • Abstract: In his essay "The Four Master Tropes," Kenneth Burke discusses the significance of metaphor, metonym, synecdoche, and irony (A Grammar of Motives [Berkeley: University of California Press, 1969], 503–17). While these four tropes are important for the way we conceptualize the world around us, Michael Cherlin argues that irony is unique among them: "Irony has an existential quality not shared with the other tropes. We can speak of 'life's ironies' in ways that we cannot speak of life's metaphors, synecdoches, or metonyms" (p. xiv). This conceptualization of irony is the springboard for Cherlin's book, which examines the roles that irony can play in how we think about music.Irony is a complex concept, but Cherlin ... Read More

  • The Romantic Overture and Musical Form from Rossini to Wagner by Steven
           Vande Moortele (review)
    • Abstract: Steven Vande Moortele takes a deep dive into the history and style of the overture during the first half of the nineteenth century in his book The Romantic Overture and Musical Form from Rossini to Wagner. Focusing on history, types, and reception along with a close formal analysis, Moortele reveals the overture as an overlooked crux of romantic orchestral music: "Straddled between the theater and the concert hall, the overture can even be considered the only truly European instrumental genre of its time. From a Germanic perspective, it bridges the gap between Beethoven's symphonies and Liszt's symphonic poems in an era plagued by recurring doubts about the viability of the symphony" (p. 6).Due to the frequency of ...

  • Brahms and His Poets: A Handbook by Natasha Loges (review)
    • Abstract: Generally, the standard interpretation of the art songs of Johannes Brahms emphasizes their broad emotional content rather than their poetic details. If scholars and performers take the view, however, that poets and composers necessarily play equal roles in the creation of song, they need to know more about Brahms's poets. Natasha Loges explains that Brahms "must have glimpsed a trace of gold in each poem he set, otherwise this extremely exacting composer would not have bothered" (p. 2). Through his published solo songs, Brahms set the poetry of forty-six poets. Loges designed Brahms and His Poets: A Handbook to illuminate Brahms's relationship to each poet as well as to explore their wider context by providing ... Read More

  • French Vocal Literature: Repertoire in Context by Georgine Resick (review)
    • Abstract: For many performers, encounters with academic writing in musicology can be disorienting and even frustrating. Musicologists take up questions about the social function of music and address where the formal and stylistic elements of certain composers or whole schools originate. But these questions can seem wildly irrelevant to people with performance backgrounds or futures. Even music history pedagogy, when directed specifically toward students who may not pursue such academic ideas, can sidestep the material students really want to know: how to perform music better, how to appreciate it more, and how to make others appreciate it.One way in which music history pedagogy can feel acutely disassociated with pragmatic ...

  • The Music and Music Theory of Paul Hindemith by Simon Desbruslais (review)
    • Abstract: Simon Desbruslais describes his study of Paul Hindemith's music and music theory as "an investigation into the relationship between Hindemith's theory and practice" (p. 5). In this undertaking, he acknowledges an important precedent in David Neumeyer's 1986 monograph The Music of Paul Hindemith (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press) and notes that since that time, "no devoted monograph has been published on Hindemith in the English language" (p. 9). Desbruslais's book shares broad similarities with Neumeyer's. It begins by examining Hindemith's once widely discussed theory of musical material and compositional technique, establishes a method for analyzing his music that relates to his theory, and then implements ...

    • Abstract: Cultivating String Quartets in Beethoven's Vienna by Nancy November is worth serious consideration by individuals who love and think deeply about music as historical and cultural phenomena and by libraries serving such patrons. In a clear, sophisticated, and carefully crafted narrative, the book takes on three paradigms that November argues have distorted our understandings of the genre: the "near-exclusive focus" on Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Ludwig van Beethoven; the overlooking of other composers' music—except perhaps for their string quartets—and then judging them by narrow aesthetic ideals; and the presentation of instrumental chamber music as "'au tonomous,' cut off from social situations and ...

  • Czech Music around 1900 by Křupková, Jiří Kopecký
           et al. (review)
    • Abstract: "We get a fascinating kaleidoscope … around the question of Czech music by some of the leading scholars in the field, much of which has never before been available in English" (p. 13). These words from Michael Beckerman's article "Flowers in the Graveyard, Tombstones in the Garden" aptly sum up the achievement of this generously illustrated book. Its main beneficiaries are four Czech composers born after Leoš Janček, who so far have received comparatively little attention by Western musicologists: Josef Bohuslav Foerster (1859–1951), Víteˇzslav Novák (1870–1949), Josef Suk (1874–1935), and Otakar Ostrčil (1879–1935).This publication, made possible by a grant from the Czech government, unites nineteen essays by nine ...

  • Singing in the Age of Anxiety: Lieder Performances in New York and London
           between the World Wars by Laura Tunbridge (review)
    • Abstract: On the surface, Laura Tunbridge's monograph is a reception history: "a narrative about canon formation" (p. 2). It examines the response to lieder— mainly that of Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Hugo Wolf, and Richard Strauss—between the world wars, when such older repertoire and its myriad cultural, artistic, and national associations had become increasingly old fashioned and unpopular. But this is not essentially a book about repertoire but rather about changes in the performance and reception of lieder at a time when many of its renowned participants were in flux— both literally, as they crossed seas in search of success and often political freedom, and figuratively, as they swore allegiances ...

  • Renegotiating French Identity: Musical Culture and Creativity in France
           during Vichy and the German Occupation by Jane F. Fulcher (review)
    • Abstract: Scholarship from various fields— including history, Vichy studies, sociology, and musicology—have concentrated on dissecting myths surrounding the occupation of France (1940–44), which fall into two generalities of total collaboration or total resistance. The reality of the situation lies somewhere in the middle, as many individuals participated in resistance or collaboration in a variety of ways. Jane Fulcher's Renegotiating French Identity: Musical Culture and Creativity in France during Vichy and German Occupation expands on this conversation by closely examining the activity of several of the most prominent French musicians of the period. Focusing on the first two years of the occupation and trajectory of Vichy ... Read More

Stephen Banfield has widely written on English music, including that of the West Country, throughout his career. In this book, he eloquently qualifies the comprehensive, though naturally not exhaustive, outcome of his self-declared "labour of love" as a "provisional history" (pp. xi, xiii), which, based on recent local research throughout the peninsula, ranging from Salisbury in the East and the gateway ...

Tyranny and Music is the result of a 2015 conference organized by editors Joseph E. Morgan and Gregory N. Reish. They frame this collection within the overarching themes of oppression and resistance, citing the tyrannical influence of Napoleon Bonaparte on European music. In the introduction, Morgan states, "as a tyrant, the impact of Napoleon suffered no apparent boundaries. It is for this reason that I did not seek a more specific theme for this essay collection" (p. xi). Because of this approach, the thirteen essays in the collection are organized without sub-groupings ... Read More

Rather than tell readers what he has learned about hip hop in over a decade of research, J.

  • The Courage of Composers and the Tyranny of Taste: Reflections on New
           Music by Bálint András Varga (review)
    • Abstract: Courage is an interesting word, connoting an internal strength in the face of severe trauma. Such bravery is traditionally an attribute of "good character," evident in numerous heroes' tales, ranging from ancient myths to Holly-wood movies, that laud courage and self-sacrifice for the greater good. With the notable exception of composers working under political persecution in the traditional sense—for instance, those oppressed by tyrannical state regimes—such subjugation is perhaps not immediately synonymous with the seemingly privileged world of new music. In this intriguing collection of interviews, Bálint András Varga wants us to be convinced of just this: that the modern craft of composition is not a socially ... Read More

Based on extensive historical research, it presents a critique of modernity and its construction and reification of race that considers both the limits and emancipatory possibilities of the logic of African origins. Garcia's study situates the tendency on the part of academics, intellectuals, performers, and audiences to hear and justify the African origins of black music since the 1930s within a broader social and historical context.

    • Abstract: When composer Dimitri Tiomkin won an Oscar for the score of The High and the Mighty in 1955, he accepted it stating, "I would like to thank Beethoven, Brahms, Wagner, Strauss, [and] Rimsky-Korsakov" (quoted in Thomas Maremaa, "The Sound of Movie Music," New York Times, 28 March 1976). Tiomkin was finally acknowledging the roots of twentieth-century Hollywood music in nineteenth-century symphonic music. Indeed, in the hands of several composers like Tiomkin, Hollywood film music began to gradually outgrow its roots and form its own aesthetics, functions, and style. It is this musical independence that Frank Lehman defines and investigates in Hollywood Harmony: Musical Wonder and the Sound of Cinema. His focus ... Read More

In Unlimited Replays: Video Games and Classical Music, William Gibbons explores how art and entertainment collide, blurring boundaries that otherwise seem clear.

His prominence reached well beyond the opera house to the realms of orchestral music and particularly sacred music, in which he achieved international success through his wide array of Catholic liturgical compositions and oratorios. It is thus fitting that the recent bicentennial of his birth, marked otherwise by rather limited fanfare, should elicit new editions of the most popular of his seventeen known ... Read More

Most startling among these is the first publication (in appendix 1) of music that was cut from the work. As the new score is so affordably priced, this additional material is reason enough to acquire the edition.
