Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book asks how a study of many different musics in South East Europe can help us understand the construction of cultural traditions, East and West. It crosses boundaries of many kinds, political, cultural, repertorial and disciplinary. Above all, it seeks to elucidate the relationship between politics and musical practice in a region whose art music has been all but written out of the European story and whose traditional music has been subject to appropriation by one ideology after another. South East Europe, with its mix of ethnicities and religions, presents an exceptionally rich field of study in this respect. The book will be of value to anyone interested in intersections between pre-modern and modern cultures, between empires and nations and between culture and politics. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : This book investigates multiple musical traditions in South East Europe, crossing conventional borders between musicology and ethnomusicology in an attempt to elucidate how music has contributed to the definition of national, regional and social identities in the region.

Critique: "Samson successfully combines academic discourse and a fresh and unobtrusive personal approach, especially in polemically sensitive areas. He should be given credit for not avoiding the sensitive questions regarding the Yugoslav "wars of succession" from the 1990s. The book as a whole is magnificently erudite, broad-minded and coherent. Music in the Balkans is indeed a brilliant achievement that will certainly prove to be indispensable and inspiring for both scholars in Balkan studies and interested laymen, and will no doubt be hard to surpass." Melita Milin, Principal Research Fellow, Institute of Musicology, Serbian Academy of Sciences, in Musicology volume 16. "The book's task is ambitious, and its intentions important: to provide an account of art music, church music, popular music and traditional music in the Balkans which will identify 'patterns in the cultural history of the region as a whole. [...] The strength of Music in the Balkans is that it places all examples into the longue duree [...] The aims and scope of Music in the Balkans mean that research libraries with serious interests in the region should not be without this book." Catherine Baker, University of Hull in European History Quarterly, 2014, 44. (full review text: http://ehq.sagepub.com/content/44/3/573.citation) "The highly innovative potential of this volume, searching for commonalities and not for differences in Balkan music history, cannot be valued enough. The extensive and complete list of references (mainly in Western European languages) on 31 pages is worth alone buying this book. The book will surely have a lasting and positive impact for all following studies on Balkan music for two reasons: firstly, the attempt to look beyond the East-West dichotomy as translated into music, and secondly, the visionary call for a denationalisation of music history." Eckehard Pistrick in Anthropological Notebooks XIX/3 (2013) "This book is a monumental contribution to musical scholarship; the depth and range of the final product is astonishing. The book is divided into five parts, of which the first, 'Balkan Geographies', endeavours to explain something of the hugely complex micro-geographies of the region, beginning with a discussion of the Jewish presence in Sarajevo and covering ethnic groupings and movements particularly in the former Yugoslavia and Greece. The second, 'Historical Layers', cuts the cake vertically, discussing such complex interrelationships as that between Byzantine chant and Ottoman music ('A Makam-Echos Culture'), the beginnings of modernism, and the phenomenon of Yugoslavism. 'Music in Transition', the third part, deals with the consequences of modernism, the impact of nationalism and includes specific contextualized case studies. The fourth part, 'Eastern Europe', deals with the Communist period, and the political situation in Greece. The fifth and final part, 'Global Balkans', gets to grips with the maelstrom of confusion that has characterized the region's post-Communist history. Conclusions might be thought perhaps impossible, but Samson does not shrink from trying to pull all the threads together in his substantial final chapter, 'Endgame'. 'There is', he says, 'a narrative of emancipation, but there is also a narrative of homecoming, of roots. There is a strong current drawing this region inexorably westwards, but there are eddies, undertows, that pull it back constantly to the East.' This neatly enshrines the complexity, the paradoxical quality and the astounding richness of the Balkans so well presented in this outstanding book." Ivan Moody in International Record Review, April 2014, pp. 78-79 "A many-voiced world of opinion and thought is opened up. This work is unprecedented in its compass, and its insights apply far more broadly than its remit." Kim Burton in Songlines 98, p. 82 "a hugely significant contribution to our understanding of this region's culture."
