  • The Mystery of the Schubert Song: The Linked Data Promise
    • Abstract: "I think the German group really needs one more song." A music reference situation unfolded as the voice teacher discussed a recital program with her student. "I remember that Austrian soprano.… Was she Austrian' What's her name' Strada' Estrada' The last song on her album is a Schubert song.… It's upbeat; it starts on a high G. What's that song called' It's one word.… I think it ends with '-lein'.…" The teacher thumbed through her volumes of the complete Schubert songs, then started running her finger down the index. In the meantime, the student picked up her mobile phone and pulled up "List of songs by Franz Schubert" on Wikipedia. She moved on when she realized the songs were listed by opus and catalog numbers. ... Read More

  • Barbarians at the Gates: Grove and World Percussion
    • Abstract: All investigations into the music of barbarous nations have been avoided, unless they have some direct bearing on European music.A Dictionary of Music and Musicians in its eight successive editions, culminating in the current Grove Music Online, is the most comprehensive English-language music encyclopedia in the world.1 Like all encyclopedias, each edition presents a conceptual landscape of human knowledge; the boundaries of Grove's landscape, however, are defined by what is understood and valued in music. Moreover, these boundaries have shifted and been redrawn during the work's nearly 140-year history, especially as global influences shaped Western classical music. Modern percussionists, familiar with the wide ... Read More

  • Mahler Reception in Forty Historic Editions: Significant Holdings in the
           Newberry Library, Chicago
    • Abstract: Is it possible that the investigations of printed editions associated with earlier eras can yield significant information about the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries' The legacy of Gustav Mahler (1860–1911) benefits from several biographies, which derive from published letters as well as articles and memoirs by those who knew him, including his widow Alma, his onetime confidante Natalie Bauer-Lechner, his protégé Bruno Walter, and others. Although they offer many insights into his life, the reception of Mahler's music would be insufficiently documented if based only on this documentation. Instead, biography can benefit from the use of notated musical sources. Any misunderstandings about reception could be ... Read More

  • From Scratch: Writings in Music Theory by Larry Polansky (review)
    • Abstract: From Scratch: Writings in Music Theory collects the theoretical essays of composer James Tenney (1934–2006) into a single volume for the first time. A student of Carl Ruggles, by the time of his death Tenney could be described as an experimental composer, yet one who had developed a unique and rigorous style of music theory, and had upended most of the classical tenets of music-theoretical and compositional thought. This rethinking was enabled by the influence of John Cage and by Tenney's role as an early computer music composer, a proto- or American-spectralist composer, a researcher of psychoacoustics, a historian of theory (especially of consonance and dissonance), and a composition pedagogue.Tenney recalled ...

It is truly a labor of love; his bibliography lists an M.A. thesis and seven published articles in six different journals. Having followed and encouraged his work for many years, I am aware of two more articles that have been published since this book went to press. In Sound the Trumpet, Beat the Drums, a thoroughly researched and extensive study, Gleason concentrates on the mounted bands of the United States Army.Gleason proceeds chronologically, beginning with the origins of the mounted band in Middle Eastern and European traditions. He then moves to the American Revo -lutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Mexican–American ... Read More

  • Bach & God by Michael Marissen (review)
    • Abstract: In Bach & God, Michael Marissen collects seven of his essays published since 1995 (most originally appeared between 2000 and 2007) in lightly edited and updated versions (see pp. xix–xx). The collection is important simply for the fact that it makes Marissen's various writings on Johann Sebastian Bach and theology easily accessible in a single volume (most were originally published either in theology journals or in volumes of collected essays). While every person interested in Bach's music or in theological understandings of musical works should read Bach & God, every scholar in any field (and graduate students in particular) should read the volume's preface, which presents a biographical apology of sorts that ...

  • Nouvelles lettres de Berlioz, de sa famille, de ses contemporains ed. by
           Peter Bloom, Joël-Marie Fauquet, Hugh J. Macdonald, and Cécile Reynaud
           (review)
    • Abstract: In 1860, Richard Wagner was in Paris, trying to arrange for the Opéra to give the world premiere of the revised version of Tannhäuser. In a letter probably written in May of that year, Hector Berlioz invited him to come over to dine. The various guests that evening, he promised, will share "a very lovely pineapple" direct from Brazil. And, after everyone else leaves, he and Wagner "will have the freedom to spend time together in my study." Presumably he meant that the two would talk about topics of common interest, such as the Parisian musical world or the recent activities of their mutual friend Franz Liszt. Berlioz's "pineapple letter" has now been published for the first time in the book under review (pp. ... Read More

  • Beethoven's Symphonies: An Artistic Vision by Lewis Lockwood (review)
    • Abstract: My first thoughts on seeing this book—Lewis Lockwood knows his Beethoven, but do we really need another middlebrow overview of the symphonies'—were evidently predictable given the author's immediate justification in the book's preface. The greatest Beethoven scholars of every generation have seen fit to write exactly this type of book, or "series of historically informed critical essays" as he would have it (p. xv). It is no overstatement to acknowledge that the scope of Lockwood's knowledge and expertise warrant adding his name to a list that includes Hector Berlioz, George Grove, and Donald Tovey. At the same time, Lockwood also risks having his book end up as the newest addition to a much larger stack of ... Read More

    • Abstract: No musicologists of the current age can count to their credit multiple monographs, senior editorship of a composer's complete works, scholarly articles, countless pieces of high-quality musicological journalism, the organization of a successful concert series supporting contemporary musicians, founding membership in international musicological societies, and the creation of a music journal that stood for decades as a juncture between academic study and an interested public readership. Yet this list summarizes only highlights from the career of Henry Prunières. The volume under review is a collection of essays about his work and how it shaped French musicology and the perception of French music abroad.It is unusual ... Read More

  • Materialities: Books, Readers, and the Chanson in Sixteenth-Century Europe
           by Kate van Orden (review)
    • Abstract: As its title implies, Kate van Orden's newest book centers on the experience of music as a material phenomenon. Materialities dwells on the moments of serendipitous discovery that come from handling music-historical artifacts—music manuscripts, printed books, and instruments—at first hand. Though focused specifically on printed books of French popular music from the Renaissance, the book attempts to ground the entire subject of music printing and publishing more firmly within the history of the book. This welcome approach allows the author to introduce many new insights and contexts for exploring the role of music in commerce and life.The book is divided into two parts. Part 1, titled "A Material History of the ... Read More

Soldiers return changed—if not physically wounded, often with mental or emotional scars. Some of these wounds—most notably, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or the signature injury of the Iraq War, Traumatic Brain Injury—were created not by shrapnel or bullets, but by the sounds of war. In Listening to War: Sound, Music, Trauma, and Survival in Wartime Iraq, J. Martin Daughtry addresses not only the wounds that belliphonic sounds (a term coined by Daughtry to describe the spectrum of sounds produced by armed combat) can create but also the ways in which sounds were experienced and used by ...

  • A History of Western Choral Music by Chester L. Alwes (review)
    • Abstract: In this two-volume set, author Chester L. Alwes discusses composers and elements critical to understanding Western choral music from the medieval period until the mid-2010s. Alwes feels it is essential to familiarize oneself with medieval-era liturgy and theory before examining fifteenth-century masses, so these works are presented mostly chronologically. Volume 1 begins with Guillaume de Machaut (approximately 1300–1377) and ends with Josef Rheinberger (1839–1901); volume 2 opens with the development of the oratorio and nineteenth-century genres such as the choral symphony, and concludes with John Adams. The publication is based on thirty years of Alwes's teaching of upper-level undergraduate and graduate student ... Read More

  • Opera Acts: Singers and Performance in the Late Nineteenth Century by

When you think there are no more ways of looking at a blackbird, along comes a study that convinces you otherwise. Such is the case with Karen Henson's Opera Acts: Singers and Performance in the Late Nineteenth Century. Part of the Cambridge Studies in Opera series, this book is a persuasive narrative that focuses on a generation of singers in the last three decades of the nineteenth century, plotting their interactions with composers—in particular, Giuseppe Verdi, Georges Bizet, and Jules ...

  • The Miles Davis Lost Quintet and Other Revolutionary Ensembles by Bob

    • Abstract: In 2012, the University of Chicago Press published Bob Gluck's You'll Know When You Get There, a book focused on Herbie Hancock's early 1970s band, Mwandishi. Gluck describes his latest book, The Miles Davis Lost Quintet and Other Revolutionary Ensembles, as a "companion piece" (p. ix) to the 2012 book.With this new work, Gluck analyzes the musical, social, and economic ties among three ensembles that historically have been categorized as much by their differences as their similarities: Miles Davis's "Lost" Quintet (1968–1970), Circle (1970–1971), and the Revolutionary Ensemble (1970–1977). Gluck's overarching objective is to demonstrate that these three groups operated on "a single artistic continuum" of "shared ... Read More

  • Music and the Crises of the Modern Subject by Michael L. Klein (review)
    • Abstract: Michael L. Klein's latest book, Music and the Crises of the Modern Subject, discards traditional avenues of music theory and instead penetrates musical subjects primarily through the writings of the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (1901–1981). Following twentieth-century French philosophy, which is not new to musicology, is an uncommon path for the subjects of music theory and analysis in the early twenty-first century. Although the monograph contains fewer than 200 pages, all six chapters include innumerable nuggets of mind-altering, and often sobering, musings that challenge previous interpretations of musical works (and texts) ranging from Franz Schubert and Frédéric Chopin to Witold Lutosławski and Kaija Saariaho. ...

    • Abstract: At a casual glance a reader might be tempted to ask, "is there really a need for an entire book on stereo'" Stereo and multichannel sound is so pervasive in our lives today, and the technology is so easily available, one might feel comfortable taking it for granted. But what does one really know about how, when, and why stereo was developed' How did it become the norm for the average listener' In my work with stage production and media room designers, I found that even professionals configure stereo setups as two speakers placed on the left and right of a projection screen fed from a single mono sound source, unaware that stereo actually requires two discrete audio channel outputs. Such situations demonstrate that ... Read More

    • Abstract: Since the publication of Eugène Lapierre's landmark biography, Calixa Lavallée, musicien national du Canada (Albums canadiens ([Montréal: Éditions Albert Lévesque, 1936]), many myths, misconceptions, and gaps in knowledge about the composer of the music for Canada's national anthem, "O Canada!," have endured. Brian Christopher Thompson's Anthems and Minstrel Shows: The Life and Times of Calixa Lavallée, 1842–1891 is therefore a much-needed contribution to the inadequate literature on Lavallée, presenting the first thorough account of his life "as a composer, instrumentalist, conductor, administrator, educator, and critic" (p. xxiii).Thompson's biography follows Lavallée's trail chronologically, using a wide array ...

In her analysis of reggaetón artists, song lyrics, music videos, and media coverage, she describes how the genre's origins and development, representation, and perception at the same time illuminate, challenge, reify, and transform conceptions of blackness and national identity in Puerto Rico. Well written and organized, and convincingly argued, her timely study resonates with and contributes significantly to current aca demic understandings of music, race, gender, sexuality, and nation, and their intersections within ...

    • Abstract: The new complete edition of works by Andreas Hammerschmidt (ca. 1611–1675) offers a welcome addition for anyone interested in seventeenth-century German music. The composer, a native of Bohemia, fled to Saxony with his father in 1626 on account of their Lutheran faith. Hammerschmidt then must have received a good enough musical training to land organist posts at prominent churches in Freiberg, and later in Zittau. He wrote mostly sacred music for the Lutheran liturgy, devotion, and special occasions, adopting the most common genres of his age: motets, sacred concertos, dialogues, and strophic arias. We know from seventeenth-century inventories that his music found its way into countless Lutheran church and school ... Read More

    • Abstract: The extant repertory of French baroque organ music is substantial. The contents of various livres d'orgue, from Guillaume Gabriel Nivers to André Raison, published between the 1660s and the 1710s, number well over one thousand pieces. In addition, there are significant collections in manuscript, notably the 400 works of the so-called Livre d'orgue de Montréal. And yet this represents but a tiny proportion of the music turned out by Parisian, let alone French organists over this period. The alternatim performance of liturgical items at First Vespers, Matins, Lauds, Terce, the Mass, and Second Vespers, and maybe also Compline required on a principal feast day the performance of some one hundred separate organ ...

Born out of Clague's desire to produce a usable recording of The Star-Spangled Banner and its melodic source (a British tune called The Anacreontic Song) for the undergraduate classroom, the songbook proj ect expanded significantly as he was lured by the manifold historical transformations of the tune as well as of Francis Scott Key's famous text. ...

  • Pirrhus ed. by Lisa Goode Crawford (review)
    • Abstract: Pancrace Royer (1705–1755) was a composer, keyboard player, and administrator, who in the course of his career held important supervisory and teaching positions at the Paris Opéra, the French royal court, and the Concert Spirituel. We know him best for two successful operas from his mature years—Zaïde, reine de Grenade (1739) and Le pouvoir de l'Amour (1743)—as well as a collection of adventuresome harpsichord pieces. His first composition for the Opéra, the tragédie en musique Pirrhus (1730), is another matter.
