Women's Voices Across Musical Worlds

Written by a distinguished group of musicologists and ethnomusicologists, the essays collected here provide a cross-cultural and cross-historical view of the roles women have played as creators and performers and the representation of women in world, popular, and western art music. Organized in five sections, the readings deal with a broad spectrum of topics and approaches about women, gender, and sexuality in music across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas from the twelfth century to the present. Included are such significant themes as class and sexual politics in domestic and professional music making, the sequestration of female musical performance, the lament, gender identity through performance, and women singers as empowered voices of the people. In celebrating the diversity of women's musical voices, this eclectic collection will appeal to students, scholars, and general readers interested in music history, world music, and women's studies.

About the Author

Jane A. Bernstein is the Austin Fletcher Professor and former Chair of the Department of Music at Tufts University. Her book, Music Printing in Renaissance Venice: The Scotto Press (1539-1572), won the American Musicological Society's Otto Kinkeldey Award for the most distinguished musicological work of the year.

Reviews

“Without cluttering up her prose with names of authors of texts, Bernstein gives the reader a clear sense of the relevant topic of each section, its scope across geography and time, the theoretical approaches and principal scholarly work regarding the issue, and suggestions for further reading. She deftly weaves into these introductions information and perspective gleaned from the case studies in the section . . . so that they easily join the conversation of the subject at hand.”—Women and Music
