9781107012370: Music and the Exotic from the Renaissance to Mozart
Revue de presse :

'European encounters with Asia and the Americas found echoes in the theater, church, and chamber, as music itself found new ways to convey meaning and provoke a wide range of feelings. Ralph P. Locke's magisterial tour of the exotic takes us not only to lands both far and near, but also through changing musical worlds laced with danger and excitement.' Tim Carter, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

'In this immensely learned and amazingly wide-ranging companion to Musical Exoticism … Locke moves back in time to consider the musical portrayal of Otherness in European music from 1500 to 1800. [He] is a cultural historian of the highest order: he draws together a broad range of literary, historical, visual, and musical materials to demonstrate how the performing arts participated in the delineation of center and periphery, Us and Them. Particularly impressive is [his] attention to the semiotic fluidity of works in performance and his elucidation of the exotic as 'relational' rather than essential, even as he argues for a historically grounded interpretation of the musical depiction of the Other. [This book] should be required reading for anyone interested in this period, and I expect it will have a profound effect on our understanding of how the imagined Elsewhere shaped European culture.' Amanda Eubanks Winkler, Syracuse University

'With a rich and diverse set of compelling case studies, and many beautiful images, Music and the Exotic from the Renaissance to Mozart offers a gold standard for the scholarly interpretation of cross-cultural representation through music in the early modern period. Ralph P. Locke shows how Europeans used musical works to engage with the wider world, not merely as a passive reflection or commentary, but as a symbolic means of representing to themselves 'exotic' cultural identities for specific political purposes.' David R. M. Irving, Australian National University

'Fascinating, entrancing and thoroughly enjoyable. Locke's survey and (re)evaluation of works from L'homme armé masses of the fifteenth century to Mozart's portrayal of Osmin's rage in Die Entführung aus dem Serail is truly inspiring … Ambitious but nuanced explorations characteristic of post-Edward Said scholarship. Exoticism as explored by Locke … ranges across a dazzling swathe of historical material from the appropriated dance styles of folk culture to the choruses of Handel's Old Testament oratorios … This is Locke's great strength as a writer and historian: what sounds so abstruse in theory is explored with such enjoyable relish in musical examples.' Edward Green, Gramophone

'Locke's consideration of Venetian opera, French Baroque opera and eighteenth-century [operatic] comedy is detailed and insightful.' George Hall, Opera

Présentation de l'éditeur :

During the years 1500–1800, European performing arts reveled in a kaleidoscope of Otherness: Middle-Eastern harem women, fortune-telling Spanish 'Gypsies', Incan priests, Barbary pirates, moresca dancers, and more. In this prequel to his 2009 book Musical Exoticism, Ralph P. Locke explores how exotic locales and their inhabitants were characterized in musical genres ranging from instrumental pieces and popular songs to oratorios, ballets, and operas. Locke's study offers new insights into much-loved masterworks by composers such as Cavalli, Lully, Purcell, Rameau, Handel, Vivaldi, Gluck, and Mozart. In these works, evocations of ethnic and cultural Otherness often mingle attraction with envy or fear, and some pieces were understood at the time as commenting on conditions in Europe itself. Locke's accessible study, which includes numerous musical examples and rare illustrations, will be of interest to anyone who is intrigued by the relationship between music and cultural history and by the challenges of cross-cultural (mis)understanding.
