  • Introduction to Special Issue on Race and Music Libraries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On 25 May 2020, a White police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota murdered a Black man named George Floyd. One week later Avery Boddie, then a music librarian at the University of Nevada—Las Vegas, posted a message on the Music Library Association’s email distribution list asking whether the governing board of MLA had considered “drafting a statement rejecting racism and police brutality in the US.” He went on to sayI believe this would be appropriate for MLA as there are a number of Black and other librarians of color who are extremely disturbed and distressed by the events of the past month (Ahmaud Arbery and [Breonna] Taylor are not forgotten [in] our minds) and could use a show of support from a professional ...

      Abstract: In late 2020, I was delighted to see the call for papers for this issue of Notes, the first in its history to be based entirely on themes of diversity and inclusion. Amidst the chaos of protests and demonstrations decrying the tragic deaths at the hands of police of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd (among far too many others), our co-editors, Jonathan Sauceda and Avery Boddie, initiated what will, without a doubt, add spark to the ongoing conversation around equity, diversity, inclusion, and race in MLA and in our professional practice. Through explorations of practical and philosophical approaches, our authors guide the rest of us on our own journeys in the work of anti-racism. I sincerely hope that this issue will ... Read More

  • What Does Race Have to Do With Music Libraries and the Performing
           Arts'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Most US music departments were founded in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and they reflected the standards and tastes of Anglo-Saxon elites who believed that European art music possessed qualities separating it from the music of darker-skinned, lower-class Americans. The founding of music schools on college campuses coincided with a period of mass immigration from eastern and southern Europe, as well as Asia, that threatened to remake the cultural landscape of US metropolitan areas. As cultural elites worried openly about the racial integrity of the United States, classical music was swept into a process of cultural gerrymandering that sought to maintain Anglo-Saxon hegemony. Historian Lawrence ... Read More

  • Towards A Critical Music Information Literacy Praxis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The praxis of critical pedagogy is intentional inclusion and reflective teaching practices grounded in theory with an aim of (social) justice.1 To engage in radical, critical instruction requires lesson planning that is representational, teaching methods that are equitable and inclusive which “insist that everyone’s presence is acknowledged,”2 and the ability to empathetically pivot “to allow for spontaneous shifts in direction,” fostering excitement for learning.3 “Critical information literacy asks librarians to engage with their patrons and communities to co-investigate the political, social, and economic dimensions of information, including its creation, access, and use. This approach to information literacy ... Read More

           Music Librarianship

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As defined by Fobazi Ettarh, vocational awe refers to “the set of ideas, values, and assumptions librarians have about themselves and the profession that result in the belief that libraries as institutions are inherently good and sacred, and therefore beyond critique.”1 In addition to shielding the institution from critical examination, Ettarh argues that this framing of libraries and library work as inherently good and sacred is in fact detrimental to libraries and library workers it purports to celebrate.If the library is assumed to be a good and sacred institution, it positions those who work in libraries as fulfillers of a sacred calling, or vocation.2 The religious language here is not merely a coincidence, as ...

      Abstract: As curators and stewards of collections of scores, scholarship, and recordings designed for teaching, learning, research, and performance, music librarians often have a range of responsibilities. We select materials and maintain collections intended to support the curriculum; we provide access to content that meets the extra-curricular research and performance needs of our campus and wider communities; and we anticipate trends in scholarship and critical inquiry in order to facilitate serendipitous discovery and to spark curiosity in the minds of users. This is a large portfolio of tasks, and music librarians responsible for selection, as well as staff who administer budgets and oversee development of collection ... Read More

      Abstract: The Special Collections Research Center of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC has acquired the collection of guitar scholar and publisher Matanya Ophee (1932–2017). Acquired through J & J Lubrano Music Antiquarians, this is one of the largest collections of nineteenth-century printed guitar music in existence and will be kept intact as the Matanya Ophee Collection. Highlights include over five hundred first and early editions of major guitar composers including Fernando Sor, Mauro Giuliani, Matteo Carcassi, Ferdinando Carulli, and many others, as well as the only complete manuscript of the Dix Etudes by Giulio Regondi, discovered by Ophee in 1987. The collection also includes the personal scores and papers ... Read More

      Abstract: Great, widely performed operas are sacred monsters. Each has many varied, attention-getting, even startling or off-putting aspects, yet comes to us glowing with an acquired specialness. The result is that such works spark cartloads of words. Many operas have entire books written about them, for example, the “guidebooks” to individual major operas by such composers as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Giuseppe Verdi, Richard Wagner, Giacomo Puccini, Claude Debussy, Alban Berg, and Benjamin Britten.But some operas have had such a rich and complex history—and, like certain legendary monsters, have taken so many different shapes—that they invite more extended and detailed treatment. One of these, in fact the most obvious of ... Read More

  • Exploring Musical Narratology: The Romeo and Juliet Myth in Music by
           Małgorzata Pawłowska (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The narratological analysis of music has undergone “three waves” of scholarly engagement, from the initial adoption of literary narratology tools in music analysis in the 1980s, through the contested discourse on the validity of musical narrativity in the 1990s, to the newly developed narrative approaches and their applications to a broader repertory beyond the eighteenth-and nineteenth-century instrumental music (Russell Millard, “Telling Tales: A Survey of Narratological Approaches to Music,” Current Musicology 103 [Fall 2018]: 5–44). An English translation of her extensively revised doctoral dissertation, Polish scholar Małgorzata Pawłowska’s Exploring Musical Narratology engages compellingly with the “three ... Read More

      Abstract: The interconnections between folklore, myth, and story are both numerous and varied. Many origin myths and legends incorporate aspects of music, song, and drama in their construction, along with both human and supernatural individuals who embody and glorify musical attributes and abilities. This book provides a kind of navigational guide to the rich mythological traditions of various cultures and countries from the fifth to the early eighteenth centuries, blending a range of musical perspectives. Case studies encompass literary, theatrical, and iconographical scholarship wrapped around musical meanings, musical philosophy, musical techniques, musical theory, and musical performance linked to various myths and ...

      Abstract: Vincent Stephens, who holds a PhD in American Studies from the University of Maryland at College Park and is director of the Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity and a contributing faculty member in music at Dickinson College, brings fresh frames of reference to conventional historical understanding of the closet and queerness pre-Stonewall in Rocking the Closet. In this winner of the Advocate “Best Queer Non-fiction Book of 2019,” Stephens examines the careers of Johnnie Ray, Little Richard, Johnny Mathis, and Liberace—whom he refers to as “the Queer Quartet” or simply “the Quartet”— focusing on the artists’ queering tools, or their “queer public behavioral elements that challenged postwar masculinity in the ...

Most of the essays are written by the contributors from this event, and the resulting compilation features a wide range of approaches to the complex relationship between popular music and various historical and cultural vehicular activities.One of the editors, Mark Duffett, provides an introduction outlining the historical and social significance of the ascendancy of the automobile and popular music in Western culture. Duffett believes that these were symbiotic commodities from the early twentieth century forward and outlines this evolving relationship by discussing eight vital elements defining the ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This volume focuses on the so-called global South, which it asks the reader to approach as a set of “diverse sonic ontologies, processes, and actions that cumulatively make up core components of the history of sound in global modernity” (p. 4). It includes eleven essays with an introduction by the editors and an afterward by Ana María Ochoa Gautier. Of the thirteen contributors, the majority are in the music subdisciplines, and thus the volume as a whole is in substantial dialogue with foundational literature from sound studies, ethnomusicology, and, to a lesser degree, performance studies and anthropology. The editors’ introduction and the first chapter, by Gavin Steingo, argue that the global South has been ... Read More

      Abstract: Maps of the earth typically cut the Pacific Ocean in half, literally marginalizing one third of the planet’s surface and the people who have inhabited and explored that vast region for millennia. In his recent book, Listen but Don’t Ask Question: Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar across the TransPacific, Kevin Fellezs seeks to recenter the Pacific and one of its most well-known music traditions. Moving from Hawaii to cultural outposts in California and Japan, Fellezs examines the ways in which players of the Hawaiian guitar style, kı̄ hō‘alu, more commonly known as “slack key guitar,” have represented Hawaiian-ness through musical performance. Fellezs uses his own complex genealogy, with ancestors from Hawaii, Japan ... Read More

      Abstract: Over the last several years, political and social upheaval across the globe has drawn into sharp relief not only the continuing relevance of “history” in the modern world but also the importance of interrogating the ways in which history is continually remade and reinterpreted in light of contemporary circumstances. The concomitant growth of indigenous and decolonial studies in recent decades (including within music studies writ large) has also encouraged attempts to revisit and reposition tidy historical narratives as scholars once posited them in light of more localized versions of history that work against certain hegemonic or colonial narratives, including those perpetuated by the state.

      Abstract: Although devotees of English Renaissance music will probably already be familiar with the most famous musical elegies from that period, this monograph is a welcome first book-length account of the genre as a whole. K. Dawn Grapes has not attempted an exhaustive survey of every work of this type, however, nor has she provided an overtly technical study of the music itself. Instead, she uses a selection of consort songs, madrigals, and lute songs as “another lens for viewing the class and social structures of early modern England” (p. 17), exploring the social connections and patron–client relationships cultivated between their composers, the dedicatees of the publications in which they appear, and the deceased ...

      Abstract: Call it “outreach” or “drumming up business,” but the promotion of our libraries is necessary. Since the attitudes and skill sets of the college freshmen at my campus change every year, I am always looking for new ways to get the word out about the music library that I manage. The COVID-19 pandemic shut down, or limited services at, many libraries from spring 2020 through summer 2021. With the vaccines administered to faculty, students, and many community residents, our libraries have been reopening and restoring their services in fall 2021.Scott Stone’s MLA Basic Manual on outreach will be especially needed by librarians to revive their operations.The first three chapters convey the foundational principles of ...

  • Unsettled Scores: Politics, Hollywood, and the Film Music of Aaron Copland
           and Hanns Eisler by Sally Bick (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Hanns Eisler and Theodor Adorno’s Composing for the Films (New York: Oxford University Press, 1947) and Aaron Copland’s essay “Music in the Films” (in his Our New Music: Leading Composers in Europe and America [New York: McGraw-Hill, 1941], 260–75) have long been regarded as seminal texts for theorizing film music. Nearly every major academic publication on the subject invokes them—most recently, James Buhler in Theories of the Soundtrack ([New York: Oxford University Press, 2018], 69–76). Few publications on film music, however, offer the laser-sharp focus that blends archival research, music analysis, and film music theory found in Sally Bick’s Unsettled Scores.Bick approaches the film music of Copland and ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Telephones to phonographs, moving pictures to the Moulin Rouge: the fin de siècle continues to excite the musicological imagination. Some elements of this historical milieu have long been familiar from studies of musical modernism. More recently, especially under the influence of sound studies, scholars have turned their attention to the technological and societal transformations that characterized the decades around 1900, thus reimagining the soundscapes and auditory cultures of the time. It is against this background that the present volume on music and the Second Industrial Revolution must be seen. Indeed, for editor Massimiliano Sala, a volume on this topic “was necessary” because “in an epochal paradigm shift ... Read More

  • Authors and Apparatus: A Media History of Copyright by Monika Dommann
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Is copyright legislation shaped by media technology innovations, or does author protection move innovation forward' This is one of the major questions that Monika Dommann seeks to complicate in
      Authors and Apparatus. Dommann, a professor at the University of Zurich specializing in the economic and legal history of media, data, and culture, shows that the progress of author protection in history is not clear cut. How we define authors, what type of control is granted, and extralegal cultural practices and agreements all affect the level of protection at any one time. The path copyright takes is anything but linear and predicable—though we can learn from the responses to each new technological development, which turn ... Read More

  • Liszt’s Representation of Instrumental Sounds on the Piano: Colors in
           Black and White by Hyun Joo Kim (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: One of the pleasures of studying the music of Franz Liszt is seeing the way in which his compositions reflect nineteenth-century perspectives on literature, philosophy, and the visual arts. Bolstered by his treatises, prefaces, and letters to and from his wide circle of artistic friends, Liszt’s music provides a locus for identifying modes of thought that connect artistic production during this era. Adding to Jonathan Kregor’s work investigating the relationship between Liszt’s transcriptions and literary translation theory and visual printmaking (Liszt as Transcriber [Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2010]), Hyun Joo Kim takes a deeper dive into Liszt’s connection to visual printmaking.The introduction ...

  • The Other Toscanini: The Life and Works of Héctor Panizza Sebastiano De
           Filippi and Daniel Varacalli Costas (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Other Toscanini is the only biography published in English on the Argentine-born conductor–composer Héctor (Ettore) Panizza (1875–1967). It is a translation of the authors’ Spanish-language Alta en el cielo: Vida y obra de Héctor Panizza, published in 2017 in Buenos Aires by the Instituto Italiano de Cultura. It is a welcome addition to the North Texas Lives of Musicians series, which includes biographies of instrumental performers William Vacchiano and Dennis Brain, choral conductor Lloyd Pfautsch, the Madrigal Ensemble Singers, and several jazz and Texas musicians.The Other Toscanini is a clever title. It succinctly conveys that the subject of the book, Héctor Panizza, was once considered on the same standing ... Read More

  • Martinů’s Subliminal States: A Study of the Composer’s Writings and
           Reception, with a Translation of His American Diaries by Thomas D. Svatos
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Scholars and musicians interested in the life and music of Bohuslav Martinů but lacking fluency in Czech have faced a language barrier when it comes to accessing primary sources on the composer. As cases in point, the two extensive collections of the composer’s original writings—Bohuslav Martinů: Domov, hudba a sv̌et: deníky, zápisníky, úvahy a cˇlánky ([Bohuslav Martinů : Homeland, Music, and the World] Prague: SHV, 1966) and Divadlo Bohuslava Martinů ([Bohuslav Martinů ’s Theater] Prague: Supraphon, 1979), both edited by Czech diplomat and Martinů biographer Miloš Šafránek—still await publication in English translation. Now, thanks to the efforts of Czech music scholar Thomas D. Svatos, a substantial ... Read More

  • The Heart of a Woman: The Life and Music of Florence B. Price by Rae Linda
           Brown (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The recent revival of interest in composer Florence Price would have been impossible without the late Rae Linda Brown, the scholar who dedicated her career to advocating for Price’s music. As a musicologist, Brown spent years uncovering Price’s manuscripts, publishing her music, researching her life and career, and interviewing her surviving friends and family. Consequently, nearly all contemporary scholarship on Price is built on the foundation of Brown’s efforts. The Heart of a Woman is the culmination of Brown’s work. As the first—and currently only—book about Price, it is an important milestone that centers African American people and culture in US music history. Brown contextualizes Price and her music within ... Read More

  • Bob Dylan’s Poetics: How the Songs Work by Timothy Hampton (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Bob Dylan, as both an artist and an individual, has long proven notoriously hard to categorize. The famed singer– songwriter is a shapeshifter so elusive that the 2007 biopic I’m Not There employed six different actors (each representing a “different” Bob Dylan) in its attempt to capture something of his essence. Partially, this is a consequence of Dylan’s longevity: in a musical career spanning nearly six decades, evolution is inevitable. Partially, it is an artistic necessity: Dylan frequently reacted to the current political and social climate in his work, and as this changed over time, so did the songs. And partially, this multifariousness is a result of Dylan’s reticence and purposeful ambiguity regarding his ... Read More

  • The Poetry of Pop by Adam Bradley (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Adam Bradley’s book proposes that pop song lyrics are poetry. Certainly, there is a measure of truth to that statement, and he examines more than one hundred years of diverse popular song to prove it. Nothing is out of bounds in this investigation; Gershwin sidles up to James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Nirvana, Joni Mitchell, and Young Thug. In analyzing popular music, however, it is not always easy to find clear and convincing evidence of the poetic in a steady stream of melisma and fade endings. While I read Bradley’s The Poetry of Pop, the following words of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart came to mind: “In an opera, poetry must necessarily be the obedient daughter of the music” (Letter to Leopold Mozart, 13 October 1781). ...

  • El villancico en la encrucijada: Nuevas perspectivas en torno a un género
           literario-musical (siglos xv–xix) ed. by Esther Borrego Gutiérrez and
           Javier Marín López (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This collection of essays was born out of the conference “Nuevas perspectivas en torno al villancico y géneros afines en el mundo ibérico (siglos xv–xix)” that took place between 2 and 4 December 2014 at the Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, located in Baeza, Spain. The editors collected twenty contributions from that event and later added two more—by Drew Davies and Alfonso Colella. This volume also represents a relatively recent upswing in research on the villancico, a genre that Andrea Bombi aptly describes as having enjoyed the “greatest social relevance within the Hispanic musical culture” (p. 3; for quotations, I translate the original Spanish).The authors lay the villancico along this encrucijada ...

      Abstract: A quarter century after his passing, the pianist David Tudor (1926–1996), long acknowledged as an interpreter of choice for composers of the Darmstadt and New York Schools, remains an object of fascination. Attempts to address his legacy in the decade following his death motivated an international discourse involving established and emerging scholars, whose beachheads included dedicated journals—“Texte von und über David Tudor” (Musiktexte: Zeitschrift für Musik 69/70, 1997) and “Composers Inside Electronics: Music After David Tudor” (Leonardo Music Journal 14, 2004)—as well as dissertations by John Holzaepfel (“David Tudor and the Performance ...

      Abstract: Rarely does one find a published copy of a film’s score, particularly from a film as recent as 2010. The film How to Train Your Dragon received critical acclaim when it was first released with many reviewers acknowledging the role of the score in the film’s success. The score by composer John Powell, received its own recognition with an Oscar nomination for Best Score and winning Film Score of the Year from the IFMCA Awards. The score is written for full orchestra with a variety of folk and non-Western instruments. The published score is great for anyone studying film music, presenting a unique opportunity to dive deep into a newer score without having to rely on one’s ear and assist in widening the base of film ...

  • Sardanapalo by Franz Liszt (review)

      Abstract: For more than fifty years, the New Edition of the Complete Works / Neue Ausgabe sämtlicher Werke, published by Editio Musica Budapest, has been the most authoritative source for Franz Liszt’s music. Yet despite releasing fifty-seven volumes to date, the New Edition of the Complete Works (New Liszt Edition [NLE]) has never ventured beyond series I and II (including supplemental volumes), which are devoted exclusively to solo piano music. General editors like Zoltán Gardonyi, István Szelényi, Adrienne Kaczmarczyk, and Imre Mezo˝ have treated the etudes, the Hungarian Rhapsodies, the Sonata in B Minor, and a huge swath of some of the nineteenth century’s most difficult piano music with reverence and care. But Liszt ... Read More
