Ian D. Biddle, Kirsten Gibson
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2009 - Music - 333 pages
How have men used art music? How have they listened to and brandished the musical forms of the Western classical tradition and how has music intervened in their identity formations? This collection of essays addresses these questions by examining some of the ways in which men, music and masculinity have been implicated with each other since the Middle Ages.
