  • The Production and Reading of Music Sources: Mise-en-page in Manuscripts
           and Printed Books Containing Polyphonic Music, 1480–1530 ed. by Thomas
           Schmidt and Christian Thomas Leitmeir (review)
    • Abstract: The turn of the sixteenth century witnessed fundamental changes in the nature of polyphonic music and in the ways it could be represented. The number of surviving music sources began to climb, music appeared for the first time in print, and some repertories and works circulated widely. Among the most complex books of their time, music books are unique in "combining verbal text, musical notation and other graphic devices. The different voice parts are visually separated on the page, yet meant to be performed simultaneously" (p. vii). Also, unlike most books, they would be read by a group of people rather than an individual reader, usually to create a performance. How did music's appearance on the page affect their ... Read More

  • Performing Propaganda: Musical Life and Culture in Paris during the First
           World War by Rachel Moore (review)
    • Abstract: As Rachel Moore explores in the introduction to Performing Propaganda, historians often make faulty assumptions about musical activity during times of war. Moore dismisses the notion that musical life diminished in the face of life and death, pointing out the myriad, and sometimes opposing, ways that French composers, culture leaders, government officials, and even music publishers used music to contend with the intense rupture caused by the First World War. Moore's study is limited to "art" music of the period, focusing on elite institutions, venues, and composers. As such, her study tends to chronicle official musical responses to war rather than those that were overtly critical of governmental bodies. This book ... Read More

  • Beauty and Innovation in la machine chinoise: Falla, Debussy, Ravel,
           Roussel by Richard E. Mueller (review)
    • Abstract: Richard E. Mueller's book is a theoretical treatise on exoticism-inspired musical works written in France in the first decade of the twentieth century. In this monograph, Mueller, an independent scholar with music degrees from Harvard University, Indiana University, and the University of Chicago, makes full use of his expertise in Indonesian music, Western art music, and their intersections. In preparing the book, Mueller examined primary sources at the Archivo Manuel de Falla in Granada, the Newberry Library, the Library of Congress, and the Pierpont Morgan Library, among other libraries.Mueller's study offers a snapshot of a turbulent time in music, as Western composers searched for new and novel ways to organize ...

  • Gabriel Fauré: Catalogue des œuvres by Jean-Michel Nectoux
           (review)
    • Abstract: Thematic catalogs in music form an important output in musicological research and are always eagerly awaited. The current catalog, published as part of Bärenreiter's Œuvres complètes de Gabriel Fauré, certainly lives up to expectations. It is a thoroughly researched and well-presented volume that gives a comprehensive overview of works and sources.To the Fauré scholar, Jean-Michel Nectoux, general editor of the series and author of this catalog, will need no introduction. Beginning in 1968, Nectoux's career focused on the life and works of Gabriel Fauré. He visited the archives then kept by the family and subsequently cataloged the collections donated to the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) in 1978. Nectoux's ... Read More

  • The Notebooks of Alexander Skryabin by Simon Nicholls and Michael Pushkin
           (review)
    • Abstract: With the 150th anniversary of the birth of Aleksandr Scriabin (Alexander Skryabin) in 2021 fast approaching, performances of his music, as well as related academic conferences and publications, are likely to become more numerous, and this volume will be useful to both audiences. It offers translations of Scriabin's personal notebooks and other writings and complements this material with the editor's extensive commentary, mostly derived from historical opinions on Scriabin's work and life. The translations are accurate and reliable, which is remarkable given the sometimes ambiguous formulations of the Russian original. When compared to the Russian text, translations of both the historical academic prose and ... Read More

  • The Sonatas of Henry Purcell: Rhetoric and Reversal by Alon Schab (review)
    • Abstract: The Sonatas of Henry Purcell: Rhetoric and Reversal is the product of a lifetime of work by Alon Schab. Like many scholarly endeavors, Schab's research has evolved over the years. Though he has always centered on Purcell, Schab focuses on symmetry and reversal in the trio sonatas in this book, which is the first to explore these devices as they relate to the listener's perception of them. Many think of Purcell as a composer of vocal music, yet he was one of the most prolific English composers of instrumental music during his time.

  • The Road Not Taken: A Documented Biography of Randall Thompson by Carl B.
           Schmidt and Elizabeth K. Schmidt (review)
    • Abstract: Randall Thompson's influence on American music is unquestioned yet rarely acknowledged. Like many musicians, he lived a multifaceted professional life—as researcher, administrator, teacher, conductor, and accompanist, as well as composer. Thompson taught at Wellesley College, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Virginia, Princeton University, and Harvard University; his students included such eventual luminaries as Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Adler, and Leo Kraft. Beginning 1 August 1932, he was employed to direct a study examining the state of college music education. Though the subsequent report was instrumental in reshaping these music programs across the United States, modern educators ... Read More

  • The Contemporary Piano: A Performer and Composer's Guide to Techniques and
           Resources by Alan Shockley (review)
    • Abstract: Alan Shockley's The Contemporary Piano: A Performer and Composer's Guide to Techniques and Resources gives descriptions and instructions for the complete range of modern extended techniques for the piano. His clear, practical presentation of the material is useful for both performers and composers. To provide background and context, there are two chapters on the basics of the piano and the history of its development. Shockley then divides techniques into categories, devoting a chapter to each: using the keys and pedals, playing inside the piano, muting the strings, harmonics, percussive and noise-making techniques, bowing, and prepared piano. Each chapter contains ample black-and-white photographs and music ... Read More

  • Shuffle Along by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake (review)
    • Abstract: Shuffle Along, a seemingly fortuitous collaboration of two black vaudeville teams, ended a decade-long drought of black-cast musical comedies in New York City. The show first saw the lights of Broadway on 23 May 1921. Soon after its spectacular run at the 63rd Street Theatre of over five hundred performances, it became for devotees of American popular culture the stuff of legends. New York City, however, is not the West, and musicology is not journalism, so when the legend becomes fact, you do not print the legend, but re-examine the facts. That is just what, among other things, critical editions are designed to encourage, and why the much-anticipated appearance of this one is so welcome.Why Shuffle Along succeeded ... Read More

  • J. P. E. Hartmann: Thematic-Bibliographic Catalogue of His Works by Inger
           Sørensen (review)
    • Abstract: Inger Sørensen's thematic catalog of the works of J. P. E. (Johan Peter Emilius) Hartmann (1805–1900) may be viewed as a pinnacle accomplishment in a career devoted to the life and works of this important Danish composer and musician. While a monumental work in itself, the two-volume catalog is preceded by a major biography and an exhaustive edition of the Hartmann family correspondence. All of this previous research contributes to the depth and accuracy of Sørensen's catalog.Hartmann's life spanned the bulk of the nineteenth century, and his works are viewed as an important representation of Scandinavian romanticism. Although he did have the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and met and was acquainted with ... Read More

  • "Wozzeck's Worst Hours": Alban Berg's Presentation Copy of Wozzeck to
           Eduard Steuermann
    • Abstract: Alban Berg's presentation copy of the privately published 1922 piano-vocal arrangement of Wozzeck to the Austrian pianist and composer Eduard Steuermann (1892–1964) has recently come to light in Duke University's David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library.1 The score includes an intriguing personal inscription that will be of interest to anyone concerned with the genesis of one of the twentieth century's most powerful and influential operas.The edition in question is not the piano-vocal score published by Universal Edition of Vienna in 1926 but rather the far less common version published in December 1922 without an imprint and at the composer's expense. The title page reads:GEORG BÜCHNERS / WOZZECK / ... Read More

  • On Book Collectors and the Circulation of Medieval (Host) Manuscripts: The
           Copenhagen and Berlin Organum Fragments Revisited
    • Abstract: I wanted to show that however bizarre and zealous collectors have been through the ages, so much of what we know about history, literature, and culture would be lost forever if not for the passion and dedication of these driven souls.1When post-medieval book collectors got hold of medieval manuscripts, the history of these manuscripts was sometimes deliberately concealed by erasing owners' inscriptions or removing pages. Sometimes the manuscripts became so closely connected to famous individual owners or modern libraries that the medieval history of the manuscripts receded into the background or completely escaped scholars' attention. Recent research in manuscript studies has increasingly focused on interpreting ... Read More

  • Notes For Notes
    • Abstract: The Irving S. Gilmore Music Library (GML) is pleased to announce the completion of a project to describe and provide open access to a collection of 732 Berliner Gramophone discs from its Historical Sound Recordings (HSR) Collection. In the late nineteenth century, Emil Berliner (1851–1929) developed the gramophone, which employed flat disc instead of cylinder based recording technology. Cylinders and discs co-existed for a few years, but eventually Berliner's discs won out and became the dominant technology. The discs in this collection, produced between 1887–1912, represent some of the very first published disc recordings, and offer a unique insight into the earliest years of music and spoken word recording. ...

           Books. Volume 2: Nos. 9 to 16 (March 1820 to September 1820) ed. by
           Theodore Albrecht (review)
    • Abstract: In the lead-up to the year 2020, a veritable smorgasbord of Beethoven-themed concerts, conferences, recordings, music editions, and other publications and events were announced that sought to capitalize on the increased momentum surrounding the composer's 250th birth year. Several commentators, myself included, have questioned the utility of some of these undertakings and have criticized publications that have added little of substance. (See for instance Marten Noorduin, "What Scope Is There for Another Edition of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas'" Nineteenth-Century Music Review, 4 June 2019, 1–12, https://doi.org/10.1017/S1479409819000053 [accessed 16 December 2019].)

  • Is It Still Good to Ya' Fifty Years of Rock Criticism, 1967–2017 by
           Robert Christgau (review)
    • Abstract: The eight-page introduction is the only segment of this book that is totally new content by the author; the rest is previously published material by the famed rock music critic that originally appeared in other publications. This practice is consistent with Robert Christgau's other books, such as Any Old Way You Choose It: Rock and Other Pop Music, 1967–1973 (Baltimore: Penguin Books, 1973) and Grown Up All Wrong: 75 Great Rock and Pop Artists from Vaudeville to Techno (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1998). Christgau earned a degree in English from Dartmouth in 1962. He does not have degrees in journalism or music, but his command of the English language and constant pastime of listening to music has ... Read More

    • Abstract: This is the final volume of the fivebook series Studies in Musical Performance as Creative Practice, edited by John Rink—a project that had its origins in the work of the Arts and Research Council's Research Centre for Musical Performance as Creative Practice, which was based at Cambridge University from 2009 to 2014. The previous volumes, by a selection of scholars who are at the forefront of creativity studies in music today, tackle aspects of creativity in a broad manner as manifested in four areas of activity: The first volume is on the creative development of musicians in learning contexts, as a lifelong, complex process (John Rink, Helena Gaunt, and Aaron Williamon, eds., Musicians in the Making: Pathways to ...

  • Musical Aesthetics: An Introduction to Concepts, Theories, and Functions
           by Jonathan L. Friedmann (review)
    • Abstract: If we define musical aesthetics as the study of what makes music interesting to us, the discipline is inherently hybrid and interdisciplinary. Around a traditional core that is roughly coextensive with philosophy of music (minus on-tology), the web of its interdisciplinary connections has in the past three decades been growing to dimensions that are becoming hard to master in a lifetime. Empirical research into music perception and appraisal has started to address questions of musical behavior and appreciation that go beyond psychoacoustics, developing into a true psychology of music. Neurological studies of what happens in the brain offer increasingly detailed evidence of the specific and nonspecific domains of ... Read More

           Matelots; La Halte des Calmouckes; Le Tuteur dupé ou L'Amant statue;
           Achille in Sciro by Christoph Willibald Gluck (review)
    • Abstract: Although Gluck is best known as a composer of opera, he composed a good deal of ballet music as well, an important aspect of his compositional life that will soon be accessible to a wider public, thanks to recent and forthcoming volumes in the critical edition of Gluck's complete works, the Gluck-Gesamtausgabe (hereafter GGA). A relatively early volume in this series (which began publication in 1951) included Gluck's two most famous ballets, Don Juan (1761) and Sémiramis (1765), both of them choreographed by Gasparo Angiolini in pursuit of his goal of raising the status of ballet by constructing danced works on serious subjects; that volume, edited by Richard Engländer, was published in 1966.

In addition to these, he has edited two versions of the Glaglolitic Mass (Bärenreiter), and smaller works like the sextet Mládí and In the Mists (G. Henle). He has now added to this formidable list of achievements with brand new editions of Janáček's two most important orchestral works and the enthralling songcycle The Diary of One Who Disappeared.The Sinfonietta was first published in ...

  • Music Criticism in France, 1918–1939: Authority, Advocacy, Legacy ed.
           Barbara L. Kelly and Christopher Moore (review)
    • Abstract: Music Criticism in France, 1918–1939: Authority, Advocacy, Legacy is an edited collection comprised of an introduction and twelve essays by a range of contributors, including musicologists, music theorists, ethnomusicologists, and literary scholars. As editors Barbara L. Kelly and Christopher Moore note, the book is the outgrowth of a bilingual international workshop held at the University of Ottawa in 2011, which brought together scholars from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to discuss common themes in the study of French interwar music criticism. At the outset, there are three important general observations to make about this book: it is the first detailed study of its kind; it does not ... Read More

  • Process and Form: Selected Writings on Music by Gottfried Michael Koenig
           (review)
    • Abstract: This volume, edited by Dutch composer Kees Tazelaar, gathers essays and interviews by the German composer and theorist Gottfried Michael Koenig. The texts are translated into English and cover a broad period of over fifty years up to 2001, a time that is rich in changes and developments for electronic music and compositional theory, such as the capital passage from electronic composition in the studio to digital composition on one's personal computer. The first texts date back to a time when the study of electronic music was limited to "three available records and one score" (p. 277, from the essay "Via electronica"). Nowadays, we are far removed from early available works, and many more discoveries in the field of ... Read More
