  • People, Ideas, Things, and Places: The Tao of Notes For 75 Years
    • Abstract: Notes, in its second series, began with the December 1943 issue edited by Richard S. Hill (1901–1961). The opening "Proem" praises the first series, edited by Eva Judd O'Meara (1884–1979), for having "consistently striven to publish materials which will be of assistance and value to music librarians, and by doing so help them solve their problems and to serve more ably and readily the growing number of readers who come to music libraries for information and relaxation."1 Proudly proclaiming that in its new typeset dress, Notes would be "even more useful" than in its previous guise of "long, unwieldy, seemingly less permanent mimeographed sheets," the author says that the journal will attract better quality ...

  • Music and the Armed Services Edition
    • Abstract: Should personal memory fail—and with the waning of the "Greatest Generation"1 that prospect becomes increasingly real—film, recordings, and the popular press nonetheless continue to offer vivid reminders of the degree to which music figured prominently in the lives of Americans during World War II. Of the ubiquity of music during the war, Annegret Fauser observes:Whether as an instrument of blatant propaganda or as a means of entertainment, recuperation, and uplift, music pervaded homes and concert halls, army camps and government buildings, hospitals and factories. A medium both permeable and malleable, music was appropriated for numerous war-related tasks. Indeed, even more than movies, posters, books, and ... Read More

  • "A Musicological Sweatshop": Making an Inventory of the Music Manuscripts
           of John Cage, 1992–1993
    • Abstract: When John Cage died on 12 August 1992, he left the world a large body of work consisting of music, texts, and visual art, the exact size and makeup of which was, however, known to few at that moment. Especially in the last years of his life, Cage was an exceptionally prolific composer, visual artist, and poet, and in those years, researchers, in a manner of speaking, were having difficulty keeping track of his work. As to his music, a few musicologists knew Cage kept most of his music manuscripts simply at home, in his apartment in the New York neighborhood of Chelsea, which he shared with his life companion, dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham. These musicologists had, to be sure, always been welcome to ... Read More

Ostrove in recognition of her career-long contributions, specifically in clarifying the complex nature and application of music subject headings, as well as the separate treatment of music form and genre in subject cataloging. A vocal advocate for music and music librarianship throughout her long and distinguished career, and passionately devoted to the Music Library Association, her style, grace, eloquent and persuasive prose have graced many pages of publications, and her broad ...

  • A Sociable Moment: Opera and Festive Culture in Baroque Siena by Colleen
           Reardon (review)
    • Abstract: The cultural, social, and political dimensions of Italian opera have long fascinated musicologists, who largely focus on the cities of Venice, Rome, Naples, and Florence. In A Sociable Moment, however, Colleen Reardon turns to the Tuscan city of Siena about eighty kilometers south of Florence. Reardon's intimate familiarity with archival resources, the result of years of research supported on occasion by a Fulbright Fellowship and grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is clearly evident in A Sociable Moment. Her two previous books on the city's sacred music are Agostino Agazzari and Music at the Siena Cathedral, 1597–1641 (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1993) and Holy Concord within Sacred Walls: ...

  • Dance and Drama in French Baroque Opera: A History by Rebecca
           Harris-Warrick (review)
    • Abstract: In reflections on the relative importance of music, text, and gesture to an integrated musical drama, thoughts often turn to Richard Wagner's famously amalgamated Gesamtkunstwerk and his personification of the "three primeval sisters"—the arts of tone, poetry, and dance—in The Art-Work of the Future (Richard Wagner, The Art-Work of the Future and Other Works, trans. William Ashton Ellis [Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1993], 95–96; reprint from Richard Wagner's Prose Works, vol. 1 [London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner, 1895]). According to Wagner, this trinity, "tight-clasped, breast on breast, and limb to limb … ever themselves and ever for each other," reunited in his works after a long and shameful ... Read More

  • Exploring the World of J. S. Bach: A Traveler's Guide by Robert L.
           Marshall and Traute M. Marshall (review)
    • Abstract: The American Bach Society (ABS) and the University of Illinois Press (UIP) once again collaborate to create a special publication, Exploring the World of J. S. Bach: A Traveler's Guide by Robert L. Marshall and Traute M. Marshall. The need for such a guide arose in 1989 after the collapse of the Socialist government and subsequent reunification of Germany, which prompted a surge in tourism to Bach's homeland and facilitated new discoveries in Bach scholarship and architectural renovations of Bach sites. The new guide simultaneously incorporates these developments and complements the first collaborative special publication of the ABS and UIP (Christoph Wolff and Markus Zepf, The Organs of J. S. Bach: A Handbook ... Read More

Leaver, and Christoph Wolff, who presented earlier versions of their essays at "Bach and the Organ," a conference sponsored by the American Bach Society, the Eastman Rochester Organ Initiative, and the Westfield Center for Early Keyboard Studies, and held at the Eastman School of Music in September 2012 (http://www.americanbachsociety.org/meetings/rochester_program.html [accessed 18 February 2018]).

  • Songs without Words: Keyboard Arrangements of Vocal Music in England,
           1560–1760 by Sandra Mangsen (review)
    • Abstract: Every so often, a musicological study comes along that illuminates the historical importance of works that previously resided on the periphery of music history. In Sandra Mangsen's Songs without Words: Keyboard Arrangements of Vocal Music in England, 1560–1760, these works are keyboard transcriptions, arrangements, and intabulations of music originally composed for voice—works that became increasingly ubiquitous in England during the late Renaissance through the eighteenth century. These are also works that, prior to Mangsen's thorough and deftly argued study, have been largely ignored by most other musicologists. In her introduction, Mangsen lays out the value judgments inherent in prior scholarship. In part, some ... Read More

    • Abstract: In his recent book, Alexander Stefaniak chose an unlikely topic, explicitly stated in the first part of the title, Schumann's Virtuosity. Robert Schumann's life and works have been considered from many perspectives, ranging from the relationship between his literary sensibility and his compositional style (John Daverio, Robert Schumann: Herald of a 'New Poetic Age' [New York: Oxford University Press, 1997]), to the influence of Beethovenian counterpoint on Schumann's compositions (Christopher Reynolds, Wagner, Schumann, and the Lessons of Beethoven's Ninth [Oakland: University of California Press, 2015]), to Schumann's output in relation to culture (Larry R.

    • Abstract: Twelve years following Erika Reiman's study of Robert Schumann and the literature of Jean Paul (Erika Reiman, Schumann's Piano Cycles and the Novels of Jean Paul, Eastman Studies in Music [Rochester, NY: University of Rochester Press, 2004]), John MacAuslan offers a complement on the composer's four "E. T. A. Hoffmann works," examined in chronological order: Carnaval, op. 9; Fantasiestücke, op. 12; Kreisleriana, op. 16; and Nachtstücke, op. 23. Exceeding the narrow scope of Schumann studies, the monograph is no less significant as a metatheoretical contribution of broad relevance in critical musicology; it stages a call for an interpretive practice, described in terms borrowed from Novalis as fluid, which, like ...

  • Erik Satie: A Parisian Composer and His World by Caroline Potter (review)
    • Abstract: Erik Satie's relationship with the world, especially with the arts, was decidedly idiosyncratic. His strange clothing choices, odd performance directions, and repetitive compositions are well known and heavily described in the literature (for example, Mary E. Davis, Erik Satie, Critical Lives [London: Reaktion Books, 2007] and Robert Orledge, Satie the Composer, Music in the Twentieth Century [New York: Cambridge University Press, 1990]). Caroline Potter's newest book on Satie celebrates these idiosyncrasies without fetishizing them. Instead, she emphasizes the need to contextualize Satie as an "interart" creator at the forefront of French modernism. Potter's book, already favorably reviewed elsewhere, won ... Read More

  • Stravinsky's "Great Passacaglia": Recurring Elements in the Concerto for
           Piano and Wind Instruments by Donald G. Traut (review)
    • Abstract: Igor Stravinsky's music has been studied from a variety of perspectives over the past century. One particular time period in the composer's life that has to this day left a number of unanswered questions, however, is the beginning of his neoclassical compositional period in the early 1920s. As Donald G. Traut argues convincingly in this book, the composition of the Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments (1924) in particular serves as a nexus between several new and old facets of the composer's life and career. Of the several important studies concerning the composer's transition to his neoclassical style, one recent and notable example is Maureen A. Carr's After the Rite: Stravinsky's Path to Neoclassicism ... Read More

  • Plague and Music in the Renaissance by Remi Chiu (review)
    • Abstract: Although largely absent from Europe after 1700, the plague had an immense existential, theological, and cultural impact on the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The outbreak that started in 1347 inaugurated the second plague-related pandemic (the earlier occurrence was ca. 541–750), and for the next three and a half centuries the plague would prove to be the scourge of European life. During the latter half of the fourteenth century, many cities suffered an outbreak roughly every ten years. It wiped out large portions of the population and decimated families. The plague inevitably put pressure upon traditional beliefs regarding health, the contagiousness of disease, the connections between spiritual and ... Read More

  • Benigno Zerafa (1726–1804) and the Neapolitan Galant Style by
           Frederick Aquilina (review)
    • Abstract: This study by Frederick Aquilina is a nice addition to the relatively scarce bibliography on the rich repertory of sacred music in eighteenth-century Malta. As the author clarifies in the preface, the book is "the product of twenty years of research" (p. ix) for his master and doctoral dissertations. While in some parts it still betrays the limits of its original purpose, this volume has the merit of presenting an accurate and detailed reconstruction of the biography and production of the maestro di cappella Benigno Zerafa (1726–1804), one of the main protagonists of the music activities at the Cathedral of Malta.Aquilina presents his study in ten chapters organized around three main focuses: discussion of Zerafa's ...

His experience there, with its invigorating influence upon his work, has long provided scholars a captivating foil to the vicissitudes of his Viennese years. This association with Mozart has benefitted the city's cultural history as well by casting light on the vibrant musical culture that existed there during this era of Austrian-Imperial domination, and by serving as a continual source of pride within its musical sphere. ...

The gathering brought together composers (both well established and less experienced), musicologists, and cultural critics from Europe and America. A significant contribution from women composers and scholars brings a very welcome diversity to the resulting collection published here. Ranging broadly in scope within the new-music culture of Germany, the essays vary considerably in depth and in breadth. Although several remain in their original German, most of the essays are in English.A few common threads run through the book. In addition to ... Read More

  • Environmental Sound Artists: In Their Own Words by Frederick Bianchi and

Murray Schafer's Tuning of the World (New York: Knopf, 1977; 2nd ed., The Soundscape: Our Sonic Environment and the Tuning of the World [Rochester, VT: Destiny Books, 1994]). And yet much of contemporary sound art eschews the term soundscape in favor of language that is less lauded with polemical notions of sacred versus vulgar sounds. Experimental musical practices that incorporated environmental sounds were further explored by Pauline Oliveros, who was famous for her practice of deep listening and a holistic approach to composition that drew from elements of the environment. Uniquely, sound art has developed across sectors in radio, film, anthropology ... Read More

His innovations included strong female leads and the practice of the "show-within-a-show," replete with humor and pop culture references. But the composer-artist's output extended beyond musicals to include a variety of genres that reflected his environment and different career opportunities at given points in time. A Cole Porter Companion examines the biography and dissects many of the titular figure's musical works. The volume opens with discussions of Porter's childhood musical education, years studying at Yale, travels around Europe, and his earlier and later works. It considers family, artists, and relationships, and how those ... Read More

In some cases, the author uses reggae as an umbrella term to cover the myriad of subgenres of Jamaican music, while at other times he uses it to refer to the classic 1970s-era reggae style perhaps most familiar to American listeners. A writer for numerous reggae Web sites and magazines (including articles on Bob Marley for Reggae Beat magazine), Michael Garnice is also known for his Web site devoted to mento, a Jamaican folk style that was an early precursor to reggae.Since the 1950s, the island of Jamaica, with a population of less than three million, has ...

  • Lessons in Composition from the Eighteenth Century
    • Abstract: During the second half of the eighteenth century, generations of young musicians at the Conservatorio della Pietà dei Turchini in Naples received the art of composition from the hands of Nicola Sala (1713–1801). After completing his own eight-year course of study at La Pietà in 1740, Sala enjoyed a celebrated teaching career spanning roughly six decades, eventually becoming secondo maestro in 1787 and primo maestro in 1793. A student of Nicola Fago and Leonardo Leo, Sala was a champion of the so-called Leist school of composition, which enjoyed a notorious rivalry with the more progressive "Durantist" school established by Francesco Durante. His students included Giacomo Tritto (another influential teacher whose ... Read More

  • Gounod's Faust
    • Abstract: One of the most important and popular nineteenth-century French operas, Charles Gounod's Faust was also the most commonly performed repertory opera in Paris from its premiere in 1859 into the early twentieth century. Faust was also performed frequently throughout France, and in translation in Italy, England, and Germany. In Germany, the opera was titled Margarete in order to distance Gounod's work from Goethe's play—the opera was only a loose and partial re-setting of the play, which was still in circulation at the time. Gounod's adaptation of part 1 of Goethe's work for his opera originated in sketches the composer wrote while in Italy during his Prix de Rome (1839–1842), when he encountered Gérard de Nerval's ...

Z mrtvého domu (From the House of the Dead) came out two years after his death and, like Jenůfa, in an edition reorchestrated and revised by others. One of the striking achievements in recent years of Janáček's publisher, Universal Edition, has been the systematic preparation of new, scholarly editions of their Janáček stock in full score and study score, together with revised piano-vocal scores and newly-prepared orchestral parts. The "Brno version (1908)" of Jenůfa, stripping the score of Karel Kovařovic's revisions and reorchestration, appeared in 1996, and was followed by critical editions ... Read More
