  • Critical Music Historiography: Probing Canons, Ideologies and Institutionsby Dr Markus Mantere; Dr Vesa Kurkela

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    During the past two decades, there has emerged a growing need to reconsider the objects, axioms and perspectives of writing music history.
