Music and Institutions in Nineteenth-Century Britain

Paul Rodmell

Music and Institutions in Nineteenth-Century Britain by Paul RodmellIn nineteenth-century British society music and musicians were organized as they had never been before. This organization was manifested, in part, by the introduction of music into powerful institutions, both out of belief in music's inherently beneficial properties, and also to promote music occupations and professions in society at large. This book provides a representative and varied sample of the interactions between music and organizations in various locations in the nineteenth-century British Empire, exploring not only how and why music was institutionalized, but also how and why institutions...

Mišina

Shake, Rattle and Roll: Yugoslav Rock Music and the Poetics of Social Critique by MišinaFrom the late-1970s to the late-1980s rock music in Yugoslavia had the important social and political purpose of providing a popular cultural outlet for the unique forms of socio-cultural critique that engaged with the realities and problems of life in Yugoslav society. This book offers an analysis of three musical movements that emerged in this crucial period and argues that the driving force behind the music demonstrates a fundamentally constructive disposition towards the progressive ideal of socialist Yugoslavia.

Composing Ambiguity: The Early Music of Morton Feldman

Alistair Noble

Composing Ambiguity: The Early Music of Morton Feldman by Alistair NobleAlistair Noble reveals key aspects of Morton Feldman's musical language as it developed during a crucial period in the early 1950s. Drawing models from primary sources, he shows that Feldman worked deliberately within a two-dimensional frame, allowing a focus upon the fundamental materials of sounding pitch in time. Through close reading of several important works, Noble shows that there is a remarkable consistency of compositional method, despite the varied experimental notations used by Feldman at this time. Indeed, much of the language developed by Feldman in this period was still in use...

Hamish MacCunn (1868-1916): A Musical Life

Jennifer L. Oates

Hamish MacCunn (1868-1916): A Musical Life by Jennifer L. OatesAs the first comprehensive study of MacCunn's life, this book illustrates how social and cultural situations, as well as personal relationships, influenced his career. Having risen to fame in the late 1880s with a string of Scottish works, MacCunn further highlighted his Caledonian background by cultivating a Scottish artistic persona that defined him throughout his life. A talented composer, but also a difficult individual who made poor professional choices, MacCunn played a role in establishing national identity in British music but also ultimately sabotaged his own career.
