Description

The Grande Dame of Franco-American musicology, Professor Emerita Isabelle Cazeaux (Bryn Mawr College, 1963-1992) is here honored with twenty-seven articles, contributed by her devoted students, colleagues, and admirers from far and wide, and including an original piece composed especially for this volume. Contributors offer essays spanning all eras and encompassing virtually all branches of musicology- aesthetics, analysis, composition, ethnomusicology, history, historiography, organology and philosophy. For example, Alexander Blachly gives us fresh insights into Josquin's Missa Hercules dux Ferrarie; in Point-counter-point- Schoenberg meets Bach, John Daverio examines issues of synthesis and aesthetics between the two grand moguls; Mark DeVoto infuses a fresh perspective on parallel harmony in Debussy; Rabbi Daniel Katz examines the evolution of the Kol Nidrei in Denmark; and, Ralph Locke explores the border territory between American opera/operetta and Broadway musical as he juxtaposes West Side Story and Four Saints in Three Acts.
