9781107012370: Music and the Exotic from the Renaissance to Mozart

During the years 1500–1800, Europeans became increasingly aware of ethnic Otherness. In this prequel to his 2009 book Musical Exoticism, Ralph P. Locke demonstrates Western culture's rich response to this burgeoning awareness. His insights into the period's major works and genres are supported by numerous music examples and rare illustrations.

Rezension:

Advance praise: 'European encounters with Asia and the Americas found echoes in the theater, church, and chamber, as music itself found new ways to convey meaning and provoke a wide range of feelings. Ralph P. Locke's magisterial tour of the exotic takes us not only to lands both far and near, but also through changing musical worlds laced with danger and excitement.' Tim Carter, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Advance praise: 'In this immensely learned and amazingly wide-ranging companion to Musical Exoticism … Locke moves back in time to consider the musical portrayal of Otherness in European music from 1500 to 1800. [He] is a cultural historian of the highest order: he draws together a broad range of literary, historical, visual, and musical materials to demonstrate how the performing arts participated in the delineation of center and periphery, Us and Them. Particularly impressive is [his] attention to the semiotic fluidity of works in performance and his elucidation of the exotic as 'relational' rather than essential, even as he argues for a historically grounded interpretation of the musical depiction of the Other. [This book] should be required reading for anyone interested in this period, and I expect it will have a profound effect on our understanding of how the imagined Elsewhere shaped European culture.' Amanda Eubanks Winkler, Syracuse University

Advance praise: 'With a rich and diverse set of compelling case studies, and many beautiful images, Music and the Exotic from the Renaissance to Mozart offers a gold standard for the scholarly interpretation of cross-cultural representation through music in the early modern period. Ralph P. Locke shows how Europeans used musical works to engage with the wider world, not merely as a passive reflection or commentary, but as a symbolic means of representing to themselves 'exotic' cultural identities for specific political purposes.' David R. M. Irving, Australian National University
