  • Sounding the Virtual: Gilles Deleuze and the Theory and Philosophy of Musicby Nick Nesbitt; Brian Hulse

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    It is the contention of the editors and contributors of this volume that the work carried out by Gilles Deleuze, where rigorously applied, has the potential to cut through much of the intellectual sedimentation that has settled in the fields of music studies. Deleuze is a vigorous critic of the Western intellectual tradition, calling for a 'philosophy... more...

  • Roger Smalley: A Case Study of Late Twentieth-Century Compositionby Christopher Mark

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    How does one go about writing the history of musical composition in the late twentieth century when, on the one hand, so much of it seems impossibly fractured and disassociated, and, on the other, there has been so little certainty about what the notion of 'music history' might entail under the critiques of post-modernism? One of the most productive... more...

  • Adrian Willaert and the Theory of Interval Affectby Timothy R. McKinney

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In the writings of Nicola Vicentino (1555) and Gioseffo Zarlino (1558) is found, for the first time, a systematic means of explaining music's expressive power based upon the specific melodic and harmonic intervals from which it is constructed. This "theory of interval affect" originates not with these theorists, however, but with their teacher, influential... more...

  • Art as Music, Music as Poetry, Poetry as Art, from Whistler to Stravinsky and Beyondby Peter Dayan

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In 1877, Ruskin accused Whistler of ?flinging a pot of paint in the public?s face?. Was he right? After all, Whistler always denied that the true function of art was to represent anything. If a painting does not represent, what is it, other than mere paint, flung in the public?s face? Whistler?s answer was simple: painting is music - or it is poetry.... more...

  • The Discourse of Musicologyby Giles Hooper

    In The Discourse of Musicology, Giles Hooper considers a number of issues central to recent debates about the nature and direction of contemporary musicology.

Then, in attempting to overcome some of the problems typically associated... more...

  • Music and Ethicsby Marcel Cobussen; Nanette Nielsen

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    It seems self-evident that music plays more than just an aesthetic role in contemporary society. In addition, music's social, political, emancipatory, and economical functions have been the subject of much recent research. Given this, it is surprising that the subject of ethics has often been neglected in discussions about music. The various forms... more...

  • Critical Musicological Reflectionsby Stan Hawkins

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    This collection of original essays is in tribute to the work of Derek Scott on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. As one of the leading lights in Critical Musicology, Scott has helped shape the epistemological direction for music research since the late 1980s. There is no doubt that the path taken by the critical musicologist has been a tricky... more...

  • Brahms and the Scherzoby Ryan McClelland

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Despite the incredible diversity in Brahms's scherzo-type movements, there has been no comprehensive consideration of this aspect of his oeuvre. Professor Ryan McClelland provides an in-depth study of these movements that also contributes significantly to an understanding of Brahms's compositional language and his creative dialogue with musical traditions.... more...
