Duke University Press: new ebooks for 2018

Raymond Knapp traces the musical legacy of German Idealism as it led to the declining prestige of composers such as Haydn while influencing the development of American popular music in the nineteenth century, in Making Light: Haydn, Musical Camp, and the Long Shadow of German Idealism, published recently by Duke University Press.        making light

Knapp identifies in Haydn and in early popular American musical cultures such as minstrelsy and operetta a strain of high camp—a mode of engagement that relishes both the superficial and serious aspects of an aesthetic experience—that runs antithetical to German Idealism’s musical paradigms. Making Light is just one of 35 new titles published so far in 2018, now available on the Duke University Press Books platform for University of Cambridge registered users, thanks to continued funding by the University Library.
