  • Documenting Historical Printed Music in Rism: New Opportunities for the
           Digital Age
    • Abstract: In 1960, a 639-page catalog bound in royal blue cloth was published that represented the first major outcome of the young RISM project. Under the editorial guidance of François Lesure, Recueils imprimés. XVIe–XVIIe siècles was the first opportunity to see how the Répertoire International des Sources Musicales, an international project founded in 1952, fared as "one of the boldest pieces of long-term planning ever undertaken for the source-material of any subject in the humanistic field."1 This initial joint effort of the International Association of Music Libraries (IAML) and the International Musicological Society (IMS), and funded at the time by UNESCO, involved nine hundred libraries in twenty-five countries. ...

  • The Grawemeyer Collection at the University of Louisville: Descriptive
           Statistics of the Award's Nominees and the Collection's Contents
           (1985–2020)
    • Abstract: The Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition has become one of the most prestigious prizes in contemporary classical music. Since 1985, the award has provided between $100,000 to $200,000 to each of thirty-three composers for outstanding achievement in a large-scale musical genre or a musical work considered large in scope. H. Charles Grawemeyer (1912–1993), a successful industrialist and investor from Louisville, was intrigued by the concept of ideas and the process toward bestowing the Nobel Prizes. As a result, he established the Grawemeyer Awards with a $9 million endowment fund. In addition to the award in music composition, he also provided for awards in religion, education, psychology, and world order.In early ... Read More

  • The Paston Manuscripts as Sources of Byrd'S Music
    • Abstract: Edward Paston1 (1550–1630), linguist, poet, traveller, lutenist, and collector of music, was part of the well-known Norfolk Catholic family which produced the well-known "Paston Letters" a century earlier.2 A very large number of surviving English music manuscripts from the late sixteenth century and early seventeenth century can be associated with him,3 comprising about forty-five sets of vocal and instrumental part-books.4 Paston was the son of a Gentleman of Henry VIII's Privy Chamber, and a godson of King Edward VI; his main residence was at Appleton, near Norwich, and his important literary and cultural connections are clear from printed references in the 1580s and 90s. The Pastons were staunch Catholics, like ... Read More

  • Resonances of Chindon-ya: Sounding Space and Sociality in Contemporary
           Japan by Marié Abe (review)
    • Abstract: Filling in a long-overlooked gap in ethnomusicological studies of Japanese music cultures, Marié Abe's richly detailed ethnographic work focuses on the practices of chindon-ya, the Japanese advertising bands. More specifically, Abe's work explores the ability of chindon-ya to both reinforce and challenge accepted narratives of homogeneity, difference, sociality, and public space in Japan. In trying to understand why chindon-ya—typically thought of as an old-fashioned, apolitical practice—has survived and has renewed relevance today, Abe demonstrates how sound, history, and sociality are interrelated through the soundings of chindon-ya and how they mutually produce space. Although it may be tempting to explain ... Read More

  • Making Music American: 1917 and the Transformation of Culture by E.
           Douglas Bomberger (review)
    • Abstract: Douglas Bomberger has made admirable use of his keen sense of storytelling and talent for unearthing archival gems, this time to explore one year in which the definitions of "music" and "America" were at stake. In January 1917, the United States was on the eager sidelines of the global stage. Finally joining the war in April and deploying troops to Europe by late June, the US broke its historic neutrality with wide political—and musical—ripples. The author argues that over the course of 1917, "the old assumptions about music in the United States were upended by social, political, and technological changes" (p. 14). Although records, film, and radio had begun to make inroads into American musical life, live music ... Read More

  • Tropical Riffs: Latin America and the Politics of Jazz by Jason Borge
           (review)
    • Abstract: Reaching a wide audience almost always comes at a price, and the cost of bringing complex art forms to the mainstream can threaten the integrity of the work and its creators. Jazz music is a powerful example. Various historiographies have enabled jazz to penetrate classrooms and collective consciousness in its country of origin. Too often, though, these sources, including standard textbooks—and especially Ken Burns's Jazz documentary—perform a disservice to the music by simplifying or even eschewing vital aspects of its history and identities. Such omissions carry strong sociopolitical implications.This is where we find the impetus for Jason Borge's Tropical Riffs. A persistent shortcoming of many jazz histories is ... Read More

  • Jewish Religious Music in Nineteenth-Century America: Restoring the
           Synagogue Soundtrack by Judah M. Cohen (review)
    • Abstract: Judah M. Cohen's work takes a refreshing approach to Jewish music history, which to date has been largely examined within its own context—that is, away from discussions of other sacred (or secular) music. Cohen's goal is set out from the beginning: to counteract previous histories of Jewish synagogue music that place everything against the pinnacle of the central and eastern European Jewish masters, namely Salomon Sulzer of Vienna, Samuel Naumbourg in Paris, and later, Louis Lewandowski of Berlin. This European focus has historically promoted a one-sided narrative in which these figures are celebrated for their unparalleled musical writing for the synagogue, with a result that other accounts of synagogue musicians ...

  • Voices of Identities: Vocal Music and De/con/struction of Communities in
           the Former Habsburg Areas ed. by Daniel Ender and Christoph Flamm (review)
           
    • Abstract: This slender volume of proceedings from a 2014 conference in Klagenfurt explores the role of vocal music (ranging from traditional song to opera) in relation to the plurality of identities (from individual to supranational identity) in the territories of the former Austrian–Hungarian Empire after 1918, with a particular focus on the Balkan peninsula and relative neglect of the empire's Italian regions and farther outreaches to the east. The editors' unforced conceptualization of identity in the context of such multi-ethnic, multinational, and multicultural complexity acts as an apposite curtain-raiser: individuality is voluntarily (though not always unproblematically) ceded to become subsumed in, as George Herbert ...

  • Composing History: National Identities and the English Masque Revival,
           1860–1920 by Deborah Heckert (review)
    • Abstract: Deborah Heckert's Composing History is a valuable contribution to scholarship on English music. As its subtitle indicates, it is an exploration of musical and cultural revival of the masque genre in Great Britain. It is also an interrogation of English nationalism at the turn of the twentieth century. Heckert structures her monograph so that the former becomes a series of case studies of the latter. She succeeds in balancing the two subjects, as well as the format of context and case study in each chapter, so that the monograph feels much longer and weightier than its slim two hundred pages.Heckert intertwines the topics of masque revival and English national identity through the concept of "invented tradition" (p. ...

  • Punk Crisis: The Global Punk Rock Revolution by Raymond A. Patton (review)
    • Abstract: As a postmodern, rebellious, and independent musical movement, punk has received much scholarly and journalistic attention since its appearance in the 1970s. Punk Crisis by Raymond A. Patton is a comprehensive inquiry into the complex relationship between punk scenes and their sociopolitical and economic contexts on both local and global scales. Focusing on major centers of punk music on both sides of the Iron Curtain in the Cold War era, Patton demonstrates how music scenes interact with their surrounding environments and respond to structural transformations. The book provides historical accounts of musicians and bands and describes political and economic contexts in which punk scenes appeared and flourished in ... Read More

  • Fantasies of Improvisation by Dana Gooley (review)
    • Abstract: In Fantasies of Improvisation, Dana Gooley provides the first detailed overview of free keyboard improvisation from 1810 to 1880. By free improvisation, Gooley is referring mainly to free fantasies and other types of independent musical extemporizations (as opposed to preluding, ornamenting, or improvised transitions). Based on analyses of recital programs, concert reviews, treatises, and scores, Gooley describes the diversity of free improvisatory approaches employed in the nineteenth century, such as single melody, multimelody, or three-tone extemporizations. Through case studies of Georg Joseph Vogler, Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Ignaz Moscheles, Carl Loewe, Robert Schumann, and Franz Liszt, Gooley also documents the ... Read More

  • Brahms's Elegies: The Poetics of Loss in Nineteenth-Century German Culture
           by Nicole Grimes (review)
    • Abstract: It is only in the last few decades that scholars have begun to move beyond celebrating Johannes Brahms's music for its universality—its purported ability to rise above political and cultural challenges of the German-speaking world of the late nineteenth century—and its role in a teleological view of music history, filling the gap between Beethoven and Schoenberg. Nicole Grimes's new book, Brahms's Elegies: The Poetics of Loss in Nineteenth-Century German Culture, continues and reevaluates the work of musicologists like Daniel Beller-McKenna, David Lee Brodbeck, and Margaret Anne Notley, who have examined Brahms's music in its cultural and political context. Grimes considers four elegiac works: Schicksalslied, op. ... Read More

  • A Critical Companion to Medieval Motets ed. by Jared C. Hartt (review)
    • Abstract: Editor Jared C. Hartt's Critical Companion to Medieval Motets is a comprehensive snapshot of where we are today as well as a roadmap for future inquiry. There is a fine balance among the eighteen authors here: emerging scholars stand shoulder to shoulder with the pantheon of the field to take up old and new business alike. As a number of their concerns, methodologies, and case studies overlap, it is to Hartt's credit that each author reflects upon other contributions in this volume. The Companion, not unlike a medieval motet, is a web of interconnectivity. Even as the boldest medievalists pioneer new avenues of research, they carry a thread home to well-known scholars Margaret Bent, Sarah Fuller, and Dolores Pesce. ... Read More

           Maslon (review)
    • Abstract: For many of us, our first experience listening to a Broadway musical does not happen in a theater; it happens in our homes. For me, it was the rec room in my parents' basement, where my mother played vinyl recordings of film adaptations of musicals by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. For Laurence Maslon, it was his parents' living room and the 1958 Columbia original cast recording of Jay Livingston and Ray Evan's Oh Captain! He reflects on these early experiences listening to recordings of musicals in his latest publication, Broadway to Main Street: How Show Tunes Enchanted America.

  • Intimacy, Performance, and the Lied in the Early Nineteenth Century by
           Jennifer Ronyak (review)
    • Abstract: Performers and scholars of nineteenth-century song are continually faced with the challenge of identifying and expressing subjectivity. Jennifer Ronyak's monograph Intimacy, Performance, and the Lied in the Early Nineteenth Century seizes upon this problem. Its first part (chaps. 1–3) sheds new light on the interconnectedness among nineteenth-century philosophical and aesthetic views of subjectivity, notions of the German term Innigkeit, and the development of semiprivate contexts—like the Stägemann salon in Berlin—for the performance of subjectivity. Its second part (chaps. 4–6) explores a range of public performance circumstances that involved lieder and that developed from ca. 1800 to 1832 (the year of Johann ... Read More

  • Rebellious Ferment: A Dublin Musical Memoir and Diary by Brian Boydell
           (review)
    • Abstract: Brian Boydell (1917–2000) was a central figure in twentieth-century Irish musical life. As composer, performer, broadcaster, advocate for music, musicologist, and professor of music at Trinity College Dublin (1962–82), he exerted enormous influence on the development of music and of greater music education in Ireland. Coming to maturity as a creative force both artistically (as a painter) and musically in the early 1940s, he was at the coalface of a veritable awakening of artistic consciousness in Ireland that coincided with World War II and continued for a time afterward. It is this "rebellious ferment" (p. xxiii) that he refers to in the book and that also appears in its title. In his twilight years, he wrote ... Read More

  • Literary Britten: Words and Music in Benjamin Britten's Vocal Works ed. by
           Kate Kennedy (review)
    • Abstract: In her brief introduction to Literary Britten—a collection of eighteen essays by prominent Britten scholars as well as academics whose careers have not been devoted to the erstwhile Baron of Aldeburgh—Kate Kennedy explains that "this book has chosen to move away from the theoretical debates concerning the relationship between words and music" (p. 5) and that it hangs together as "a snapshot of the lively diversity of current thinking on Britten" (p. 7). It may also point to a chameleonic quality in the composer, some capacity of his work to permit starkly contrasting views. Kennedy describes Britten as "one of the most literary composers" (p. 8), although what evidence supports this comparative assertion, echoed in ... Read More

The conference celebrated 150 years since Debussy's birth and this compilation was published in 2018, the onehundredth anniversary of Debussy's death. The book joins a host of recent scholarship on Debussy, including Stephen Walsh's Debussy: A Painter in Sound (London: Faber and Faber, 2018), Catherine Kautsky's Debussy's Paris: Piano Portraits of the Belle Époque (Lanham, MD: Rowman and Littlefield, 2017), and Marianne Wheeldon's Debussy's Legacy and the Construction of Reputation (New York: Oxford, 2017), to name just a few.

    • Abstract: Known for his innovative style and vast compositional output, Guillaume Dufay is widely regarded as one of the greatest composers of the fifteenth century. In this two-volume set, Alejandro Planchart offers an unprecedented study of Dufay's life and works. In addition to drawing upon preexisting scholarly literature, he examined over seven million pages of archival documents while researching this project. He also uses Dufay's own works as "almost biographical documents" (p. 64) to unveil new historical contexts, offer more precise dates for his compositions, and lend new insights into the composer's relationships with various patrons. On a broader level, this study provides a nuanced window into the ... Read More

  • Lutosławski's Worlds ed. by Lisa Jakelski and Nicholas Reyland
           (review)
    • Abstract: Some composers' legacies are haunted by their biographies. Discussion of figures like Dmitrii Shostakovich frequently center around issues of their political ties or the supposed meanings hidden within their works. This has led to recent calls from scholars including Pauline Fairclough and David Fanning, who have moved to a return to that most problematic of concepts, "the music itself." Such is not the case for all composers, of course; indeed, the world of Witold Lutosławski studies has, until very recently, had almost exactly the opposite problem.As the composer died relatively recently (in 1994), many scholars had personal ties with the man, which inevitably affected the way that they wrote about his music. ...

           Balmer, Thomas Lacôte, and Christopher Brent Murray (review)
    • Abstract: This monumental work suggests that the essential key to understanding Olivier Messiaen's music lies in an appreciation of how he engaged with and used preexisting music. Scholars have tended to approach his music through his rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic language, encouraged in this pursuit by Messiaen's own theoretical writings, especially Technique de mon langage musical (Paris: Alphonse Leduc, 1944), translated by John Satterfield as The Technique of My Musical Language (Paris: Alphonse Leduc, 2001), and the posthumously published Traité de rythme, de couleur, et d'ornithologie: 1949–1992 (Paris: Alphonse Leduc, 1994). Balmer, Lacôte, and Murray instead suggest that these aspects of his musical language are ... Read More

  • Claudio Monteverdi: The Combat of Tancred and Clorinda; Between Mannerism
           and the Baroque by Pavel Sýkora (review)
    • Abstract: With a continuous stream of exciting performances and recordings by new and established early music groups, Claudio Monteverdi continues to be at the forefront of performance-based scholarship. There has, however, been a surprising lack of recent monographs on the composer, especially those that focus on individual works. Pavel Sýkora's book on the Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda, Monteverdi's setting of a section of Torquato Tasso's epic poem Gerusalemme liberata that was probably written in 1624 and was published in the composer's eighth book of madrigals in 1638, is therefore a welcome addition to the literature. This uniquely hybrid work, lying between secular monody, opera, and oratorio, has hitherto not ... Read More

  • Crooked River City: The Musical Life of Nashville's William Pursell by
           Terry Wait Klefsted (review)
    • Abstract: Unless you're a dedicated fan of the "Nashville sound" albums Columbia Records issued in the 1960s, you probably have never heard of Bill Pursell. Pursell (b. 1926), who has worn many musical hats during his long career, made his way to Nashville in the 1960s and began work as a session pianist. Indeed, author Terry Wait Klefsted notes that "the story of Pursell's life is the story of a musical life lived in America during the rise of popular music in both radio and recordings. It is the story of many choices made, and the crooked, winding path that a musical life can take, given the skills and musicianship that Pursell had worked so hard to develop" (p. xv). Forming part of frequent references to a winding river ... Read More

  • A Theory of Virtual Agency for Western Art Music by Robert S. Hatten
           (review)
    • Abstract: In A Theory of Virtual Agency for Western Art Music, Robert S. Hatten examines agency as it is projected by music and perceived by listeners. This is not the actual agency of the composer or performer but the virtual one that emerges from within music through melodic contours, rhythms, dynamics, and other musical elements that come together to resemble human movement, thought, and emotion. Hatten appeals to our imagination as listeners and invites us to pursue the implications of our physical, cognitive, and emotional interactions with music. He observes that "we as listeners are predisposed to engage with a kind of subjective identification whenever we listen to music" (p. 170). This book explores how this happens ... Read More

The centennial of Zimmermann's birth in 2018 proved a fruitful moment to revisit his legacy, with various journalistic retrospectives, a scholarly symposium, three productions of his opera Die Soldaten, and numerous performances of large-scale works such as the trumpet concerto (subtitled "Nobody knows de trouble I see"), the orchestral piece Photopsis, and the "ecclesiastical action" completed just before his death, Ich wandte mich und sah an alles Unrecht, das geschah unter der Sonne.

           ed. by Mark W. Knoll, and: Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach ed. by Jason B. Grant
           and Elias N. Kulukundis (review)
    • Abstract: The C. P. E. Bach Complete Works has emerged as one of the most important, extended scholarly ventures in current eighteenth-century musical scholarship. C. P. E. Bach (1714–1788) wrote around fifty concertos at all stages of his career. As General Editor Peter Wollny explains in a succinct preface to both volumes under review: "In addition to the increasingly refined interplay between solo and tutti, the development of Bach's concerto style manifests itself primarily through larger dimensions, higher compositional demands, and a more symphonic quality to the movements" (ix). On the first point, it can be noted that the influential German theorist Heinrich Christoph Koch (1714–1816), writing between 1782 and 1793 ... Read More

Büchlein can be singular or plural and there are two 'little clavier books' (Staatsbbliothek zu Berlin Preußischer Kulturbesitz, Musikabteilung mit Mendelssohn-Archiv (D-B), Mus.ms.Bach P 224 dated 1722, and P 225 dated 1725). Until Georg von Dadelsen's edition of both books for the Neue Bach-Ausgabe (NBA: Johann Sebastian Bach, Neue Ausgabe Sämtlicher Werk, Serie V, Klavier- und Lautenwerke, Band 4 [Kassel: Bärenreiter, 1957]) there had been no complete edition of the 1722 book and this seems to be the first one since then, although both manuscripts have been published in facsimile, and both may be viewed at Bach digital ...
