Europe, Empire, and Spectacle in Nineteenth-century British Music
Rachel Cowgill, Julian Rushton
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2006 - Music - 299 pages
This volume illuminates musical connections between Britain and the continent of Europe, and Britain and its Empire. The seldom-recognized vitality of musical theatre and other kinds of spectacle in Britain itself, and also the flourishing concert life of the period, indicates a means of defining tradition and identity within nineteenth-century British musical culture. The volume benefits not only from new archival research, but also from fresh musicological approaches and interdisciplinary methods that recognize the integral role of music within a wider culture.
