Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"A delightful journey into the highways and byways of 19th-century musical practice. Solie's observations are elegant and provocative, and her poetic way with words makes the collection a great read for scholars and general audiences alike. A wonderful achievement by a mature scholar, and an exciting contribution to the cultural study of music."—Marcia J. Citron, author of Gender and the Musical Canon and Opera on Screen

"Six brilliant essays-each a gem, and an ingenious critique of Victorian culture. Solie draws upon nonmusical sources such as diaries, novels, and journalism, and uses literary theories and historical writings as the basis of her cogent arguments. This book is not only for musicologists but for any scholar interested in the study of culture."—Judy Tsou, author of Cecilia Reclaimed: Feminist Perspectives on Gender and Music
