  • The Unique Patroness: Louise Hanson-Dyer’s Letters to the Library of
           Congress, 1936–1952
    • Abstract: Et Musique est une science / Qui vuet qu’on rie et chante et dance. / A chose qui ne puet valoir, / Eins mettels gens ennonchaloir. / Partout où elle est, joie y porte; / Les desconfortez reconforte, / Et nes seulement de l’oïr, / Fait-elle les gens resjoïr. Patrons do not merely fund music. They have talent, vision, and optimism, often backed by deep personal interests and a singular mission. Without daring measures taken by patrons such as Jeannette Myer Thurber (1850–1946), Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge (1864–1953), and Sophie Drinker (1888–1967), celebrated American institutions and traditions of music would simply not exist. These women were well-educated, well-cultured, and well-traveled. Above all ... Read More

  • From Budapest to Florida—and Back: The Journey Taken by Ernst von
           Dohnányi’s American Legacy
    • Abstract: Decades had passed without considerable musicological writings on Ernst von Dohnányi (1877–1960) when James A. Grymes published an excellent, revealing article in this journal in 1998.1 He discussed the recently explored American legacy of this significant Hungarian pianist and composer held by the Warren D. Allen Music Library of the Florida State University (FSU), Tallahassee. Many of Grymes’s later works, including his Ph.D. dissertation, made use of the rich source materials in this collection, making accessible in English several studies of fundamental importance on Dohnányi, who figures prominently in twentieth-century music history.2 By a curious turn of events, Grymes’s works appeared at the same ...

  • An Archive and a Collection of Rare Music Scores: The William Crawford III
           Collections
    • Abstract: On 7 February 2014, sixty-four boxes and one packing tube left apartment 17B of 161 West 16th Street in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City for their journey west. Fifteen days later, the William Crawford III Collection of Printed Music—over 700 first-edition rare vocal scores—arrived at the loading dock of the University of Washington Libraries together with its complement, the William Crawford III Papers: an archive of research notes, correspondence, photographs, and other documents. The materials were a bequest from the Crawford estate to the University of Washington’s Music Library. The journey of the collections started much earlier. Fourteen years before, Crawford visited the ... Read More

  • Notes for Notes
    • Abstract: Special Collections of the Claremont Colleges Library (Claremont, CA) has acquired an important copy of the piano-vocal score of Ferruccio Busoni’s first comic opera, Die Brautwahl, in time to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth in 1866. The work was premiered in Hamburg on 13 April 1912, but was not a success. The young conductor Artur Bodanzky (1877–1939), soon to become the head of the “German Wing” at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, offered to present a shortened version of the opera in Mannheim, where he had been chief conductor of the Grand Ducal Theatre since 1909. Busoni undertook the revisions in August 1912, and Bodanzky used this copy of the piano-vocal score, which became ... Read More

  • Singing and Wellbeing: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Proof by Kay Norton (review)
    • Abstract: Norton describes her project in Singing and Wellbeing as an attempt to synthesize recent scholarship on the social and historical importance of singing with medical evidence of music’s health benefits. Her work, which combines the fields of music, the medical humanities, and medicine, is timely given the rise in prominence of the work of Oliver Sacks (especially his book Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain [New York: Knopf, 2007]) and the 2014 film Alive Inside, which documents the power of music to activate neural pathways, especially in Alzheimer’s patients.

  • Singing Games in Early Modern Italy: The Music Books of Orazio Vecchi by
           Paul Schleuse (review)
    • Abstract: In the past few decades, scholars of the early modern period have devoted increasing and well-deserved attention to the crucial role that games and recreational activities played in the culture of the time, showing how these reflected their practitioners’ aesthetic and moral values. Notable examples of this trend include the influential work of Alessandro Arcangeli (Recreation in the Renaissance: Attitudes Towards Leisure and Pastimes in European Culture, c. 1425–1675 [New York: Palgrave MacMillan, 2003]) and, in the field of music history, the works of Laurie Stras (“ ‘Al gioco si conosce il galantuomo’: Artifice, Humour and Play in the ‘Enigmi musicali’ of Don Lodovico Agostini,” Early Music History 24 ...

  • The Sea in the British Musical Imagination ed. by Eric Saylor, Christopher
           M. Scheer (review)
    • Abstract: Since the year 2000 there has been a wave of musicological literature exploring the relationship between music and landscape, music and geography, and music and nature. Recently, this field of research has been increasingly subsumed under the umbrella term “ecomusicology,” defined by Aaron S. Allen as the study of “the relationships of music, culture, and nature; . . . the study of musical and sonic issues, both textual and performative, as they relate to ecology and the environment” (Aaron S. Allen, “Eco musicology: Ecocriticism and Musicology,” Journal of the American Musicological Society 64, no. 2 [Summer 2011]: 392). As part of this wider movement toward the “greening” of musicology, examinations of the ... Read More

  • The Thought of Music by Lawrence Kramer (review)
    • Abstract: “It’s disgraceful,” said Donald Trump of a piece of sculpture modelled on him, “[that] they take your tax dollars to make this filth” (Philip Kennicott, “Would Donald Trump Make Art Great Again?,” Washington Post, August 19, 2016 (https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/would-donald-trump-make-art-great-again/2016/08/17/0c7300a2-60d1-11e6-af8e-54aa2e849447_story.html; accessed 5 January 2017). It is no secret that in today’s society there is a constant fear of the arts being undervalued and side-lined. This threat seems all the more ominous given the recent victory of Trump—a man who is known for deriding artists as being “lazy” or “losers”—as President-Elect (ibid.). It is in light of these ...

  • A Journey of the Vocal Iso(n) by Eno Koço (review)
    • Abstract: This is a remarkable book, simultaneously ambitious and aware of the limitations on what it can achieve. Koço sets out to propose possible connections between the ison (drone) of Byzantine chant and the iso as used in the multipart folk singing of Southern Albania, which is certainly a big undertaking. At the same time, Koço is very clear in his preface and introduction that this study is merely a beginning, an accumulation of scraps of evidence and working hypotheses that may be taken further by future research. He is careful not to re-hash historical arguments concerning the age of the ison in the Byzantine repertoire, though this question hovers in the background constantly. The book is divided ...

           Zwangsarbeitslagern der 1920er–bis 1950er–Jahre by Inna Klause
           (review)
    • Abstract: “Wenn jemand eine Reise tut, so kann er was erzählen”—when someone goes on a journey, he [or she] will be able to tell something (my translation). This quote from “Urians Reise um die Welt” by Matthias Claudius (1740–1815) has become an ubiquitous aphorism in the German language, and it remains valid to this day—as the present publication, which originated as a doctoral dissertation at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien in Hannover and was accepted in 2012, forcefully demonstrates. Inna Klause traveled to Magadan in far northeastern Russia, and it can be safely assumed that she was the first Western musicologist to do so. Although the focus of her study is on what its title ...

  • Charles Mackerras ed. by Nigel Simeone, John Tyrrell (review)

But it was his discovery and promotion of the works of Leoš Janáček and other Czech composers that helped to mark his legacy as one of the most important conductors of the twentieth century. A musical polymath, Mackerras began his career as a professional oboist, but early on turned his attention to opera and conducting. In 1947, he was awarded a scholarship to study conducting in Prague ... Read More

  • Orchestrating the Nation: The Nineteenth-Century American Symphonic

    • Abstract: Douglas W. Shadle’s introduction to Orchestrating the Nation: The Nineteenth-Century American Symphonic Enterprise begins with a compelling question: “Why do American orchestras play so many German symphonies?” (p. 1). He opens this discussion with an account of the primacy of Ludwig van Beethoven during the nineteenth century. The symphonies of Beethoven still hold a great deal of cultural capital, often linked with large-scale celebrations, commemorations, and memorializations. Shadle’s Orchestrating the Nation provides insight into how the ideological association between established German culture and burgeoning American culture influenced composers, performers, conductors, and critics during the ...

  • New York’s Yiddish Theater: From the Bowery to Broadway ed. by Edna
           Nahshon (review)
    • Abstract: Yiddish theater arrived in New York in 1882 while still in its infancy. Just six years earlier, Ukrainian-born Abraham Goldfaden (1840–1908) had established a Yiddish theater company in Iasi, Romania. His operetta The Sorceress was the first in a long series of dramas, melodramas, comedies, operettas, and musicals that lit up the stages on New York’s Second Avenue for some seventy-five years. At its height in the 1920s, more than a dozen theaters on the city’s Lower East Side and in the outer boroughs attracted thousands of attendees per week to shows ranging from high-class Shakespeare translations to the basest vaudevilles. By the 1950s, the Holocaust in Europe and assimilation in the United ... Read More

  • Orientalism and the Operatic World by Nicholas Tarling (review)

Included in the long line of studies inspired by Said’s work is Nicholas Tarling’s recently published book, Orientalism and the Operatic World. Tarling’s book examines operas that represent what is often signified in music as the exotic Other. Using operatic terms, he organizes the book into ten chapters divided in two parts—“Aria” and “Recitative”— which are framed by an introduction (“Overture”) and conclusion (“Finale”). ... Read More

One cannot consider the correspondence of Benjamin Britten without first acknowledging, deferentially, the six volumes that comprise Letters from a Life: Selected Letters and Diaries of Benjamin Britten, which was edited by Donald Mitchell, Philip Reed, and, ultimately, Mervyn Cooke (see Donald Mitchell, “The Pears Letters,” in the introduction to Letters from a Life: Selected Letters and Diaries of Benjamin Britten, Volume One 1923–39, ed.

In sixteen extensively-argued and exhaustively-researched chapters, ranging from the question of the principally-offending essay itself (Das Judenthum in der Musik) to the question of whether one ought to continue to perform and listen to Wagner, Wagner antisémite presents what is without doubt the most comprehensive disquisition in the French language on the darker side of the genius who composed Tristan und Isolde and Der Ring des Nibelungen. Equally well known for his work on musical semiotics as on Wagner, Nattiez is ... Read More

  • Better Git It in Your Soul: An Interpretive Biography of Charles Mingus by
           Krin Gabbard (review)
    • Abstract: Gabbard begins this “interpretive biography” by explaining his own interest in Mingus, going back to his teenage years in Charleston, Illinois. It is a fitting starting point, given how thoroughly he demonstrates later in the book that any work is the product of its author’s experiences, values, and worldview, which is as true of Mingus’s life story as it is of Gabbard’s interpretation of it. One key takeaway from Gabbard’s work is that biography is a messy, nonlinear, and heavily mediated process, even when the finished product appears fairly straightforward and tidy. Of course, Mingus’s autobiography, Beneath the Underdog: His World According to Mingus (New York: Knopf, 1971), is an essential point of ... Read More

K. J. (Kevin) Donnelly, a Reader in Film at the Uni -versity of Southampton, discusses several areas in this vein; overall, the book is a cleanly written survey of topics that (in this reviewer’s experience) are all generally familiar, yet Donnelly regularly includes a sub-discussion or reference that entices the reader to pursue further study. The book’s introduction provides an overview of some larger concepts within the discourse of film soundtracks, including the basic notion that music and film images ... Read More

Wainwright’s musical output has consistently straddled the divide between so-called “popular music” and Western art music. Williams studies Wainwright’s output through his 2012 album, Out of the Game. These works might represent his most significant artistic achievements; they include an eponymous debut album characterized by rich orchestral layers, an opera (Prima Donna) initially commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera, and a song cycle (All Days are Nights: Songs for Lulu). Is he a popular music artist, or a Western art composer with minimal training? No one can agree, not even ... Read More

The book’s title (a play on Legions of Doom, the DC Comics evil superheroes) was inspired by an allegiance between five different DJ crews in northern California’s Bay Area (including South San Francisco, Daly City, Fremont, and Union City): Sound Sequence, Images Incorporated, Creative Madness, Midstar Productions, and Styles Beyond Compare (p. 27). In the first chapter, Wang notes that many of the DJs descended from the third wave of Filipino migrants to ... Read More

In their prime, these nightclubs with all-Chinese entertainment received attention from major media and patronage by movie stars, public figures, and even heads of state. Documentary director Arthur Dong has brought this significant history to life: first through his 1989 film and then, twenty-five years later, in this lavishly illustrated book that draws on a treasure trove of materials, including over one hundred interviews conducted for the film. In the intervening years since 1989, most of the interviewees passed away, and cultural tastes and norms have also undergone significant changes. ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Upper Midwest is a region rich in musical traditions, but it is not as well studied as other areas of the country. So it is very fortunate that we have these two new books that enlighten us about the music of the region. At first glance, Folk Songs of Another America resembles a book, but it is primarily a collection of five compact discs and a DVD, all bound in a book-like container with extensive liner notes. The recordings were made in the Upper Midwest in the first half of the twentieth century by the well-known folk collectors Sidney Robertson [Cowell] (1903–1995) and Alan Lomax (1915–2002), as well as the lesser-known student apprentice Helene Stratman-Thomas (1896–1973).

    • Abstract: Fate, or as often known by its Czech title Osud, is the only opera by Janáček that the composer never saw on stage: it was first performed as recently as 1958, on the thirtieth anniversary of his death. Together with the early and unrepresentative Počátek románu (The Beginning of a Romance) it was until recently the only Janáček opera still unpublished, available only for hire (three different piano-vocal hire scores were issued between 1964 and 1985, a full score in 1978).
