Description

Through the hidden or lost stories of composers, scholars, patrons, performers, audiences, repertoires, venues, and specific works, this intriguing volume explores points of intersection between music and queerness in Europe and the United States in the years 1870 to 1950--a period when dramatic changes in musical expression and in the expression of individual sexual identity played similar roles in washing away the certainties of the past. Contributors are Byron Adams, Philip Brett, Malcolm Hamrick Brown, Sophie Fuller, Mitchell Morris, Jann Pasler, Ivan Raykoff, Fiona Richards, Eva Rieger, Gillian Rodger, Sherrie Tucker, and Lloyd Whitesell.show more

Review quote

"A beautifully edited collection of essays ... A stellar contribution to queer music scholarship [and] an essential text for those interested in the modernist period." Journal of the American Musicological Society "Anyone interested in music, sexuality, or both undoubtedly will find something new or intriguing in this book and, in the process, will find incontrovertible evidence that the two worlds of sexuality and music were and are intimately connected." Journal of the History of Sexuality "Highly recommended." Choiceshow more
