Cultural Transfer Essay Collection Released

Published: 10 December 2009

A new collection of essays, Music, Theater and Cultural Transfer: Paris, 1830-1914 has just been published by Chicago University Press.

Edited by Mark Everist, Professor of Music at Southampton, and Annegret Fauser (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), the book contains 15 chapters on stage music in nineteenth-century Paris that focus on cultural transfers from German-speaking states (Wagner), Italy (Donizetti), as well as French appropriations of other cultures, such as Bizet’s Spain in Carmen. Everist’s own chapter concentrates on Offenbach’s reuse of Mozart and Rossini to give credibility to his emerging status in the 1850s.
