Music Criticism 1950-2000

Music, Criticism & PoliticsMusic Criticism 1950-2000

edited by Roberto Illiano and Massimiliano Locanto, Turnhout, Brepols, 2019 (Music, Criticism & Politics, 8), pp. xxiv + 420, ISBN 978-2-503-58442-3.

Contents

This book addresses the complex world of music criticism during the second half of the twentieth century, with particular emphasis on the relationship between music criticism and pivotal changes in politics, society, technology, and economics.

The focus on music criticism should be understood in a very broad sense, as one of the various forms of communication and expression that contributes both to the formulation of judgments, and to a broader discourse on the constructions of music.

In addition, the book deepens the topic of music criticism by addressing some defining aspects of the period, such as the development of music for the cinema, the growth of the music industry, and the new media that characterized the turn of the century.

The articles are divided into five sections: ‘Music Criticism and its Roles’, ‘Music Criticism and Italian Film Music’, ‘Music Criticism and Ideology’, ‘Music Criticism and the Web’, and ‘Case Studies’ (Amiri Baraka, Astor Piazzolla, Louis Andriessen, Dieter Roth, John Cage, and Stravinsky).

Roberto Illiano is General Secretary of the Centro Studi Opera omnia Luigi Boccherini-Onlus (Lucca) and President of the Italian National Edition of Muzio Clementi’s Complete Works.

Massimiliano Locanto is lecturer at the University of Salerno, where he teaches History of modern and contemporary music.
