Revue de presse :

Review of the hardback: 'Depictions of Turkish pashas, Spanish gypsies, and of amusing or threatening foreigners are very familiar to musicians and audiences, yet Ralph P. Locke is the first critic to confront this enormous repertoire as a major phenomenon in western music. The range - from baroque opera to jazz - is vast, and the ethical and political issues are more relevant today than ever. Locke's penetrating study explores the manifold implications of evoking exotic cultures in music, and offers insights that force us to rethink many of our most firmly held assumptions.' Hugh Macdonald, Avis H. Blewett Professor of Music, Washington University, St Louis

Review of the hardback: 'In this ambitious and challenging monograph, Ralph Locke proves himself to be an extremely expert guide to that musical Elsewhere that we all know but little understand, whether it be the multiple locations of Rameau's Les Indes galantes, the Turkey of Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail, the Sri Lanka of Bizet's Les pêcheurs de perles, the neighbourhood Otherness of Bernstein's West Side Story, or the journey from Venice to China undertaken by Tan Dun's Marco Polo.' David Nicholls, Professor of Music, University of Southampton

Review of the hardback: 'In this book, Ralph Locke offers a comprehensive and probing examination of musical exoticism in diverse musical repertoires that range from Rameau to Algerian Rap. He effectively bridges the gap between cultural and musical analyses of exoticism by grounding stylistic traits and paradigms to specific ideologies (colonialism, imperialism, Orientalism, and globalization) and cultural contexts. In demonstrating how western audiences' understanding of exoticism is mediated by cultural preconceptions and 'situated' knowledge, Locke carefully negotiates the multiple subject positions and social forces that have shaped its discursive practice.' Yayoi Uno Everett, Associate Professor, Music Department, Emory University

Review of the hardback: 'Locke's impressive achievement in Musical Exoticism is at least threefold: to have offered a synthetic account of its area of investigation, drawing judiciously upon a voluminous bibliography and over two decades of his own extensive research on musical exoticism, nineteenth-century art music and opera, and music's relationship to politics; to have offered a new research paradigm as a much-needed corrective to scholars of exoticism and orientalism in music, who have hitherto focused primarily on the 'borrowing' or appropriation of musical materials (scales, modes, tunes, styles, etc.), too often at the expense of issues of representation and interpretation; and to have outlined a compelling periodization of exoticism's shifting role within the dual histories of Western art music and Western imperialism. But, I hope that the book is also remembered for its simultaneously generous and critical - and, one might therefore reasonably suggest, Saidian - impulse to examine and assess artworks in a patently non-reductive manner. Indeed, some of the best material in the book can be found in its rich, authoritative treatments of specific compositions, creators, keywords, and topoi that span three centuries of musical production. Equally important are the book's lucid prose and accessibility to general readers, which should garner it a wide audience.' Sumanth Gopinath, Assistant Professor of Music Theory, University of Minnesota

Review of the hardback: 'Insightful and original. ... [A] subtle and powerful account of musical understanding. ... Musical Exoticism is not just a fine instance of contemporary musicology but also a timely intervention in debates about the ethical and didactic role of the arts in society.' Conor Farrington, The Times Literary Supplement

Review of the hardback: 'Weaves together musical analysis with thoughtful reflections ... [The] anecdotes provide fresh insight to time-honored classics for readers of all backgrounds.' Kristy Riggs, Current Musicology

Review of the hardback: 'Locke's superb book will undoubtedly help amplify the horizons of scholarship in the ever-expanding area of musical exoticism, by exploring the pitfalls, proposing alternative interpretations, broadening the repertory under discussion and, ultimately, by heightening our understanding of our position as listeners and consumers.' Musicology

Review of the hardback: '[Locke's] approach is warm, enthusiastic and instructive on those musical details introduced in order to 'link a work to some fascinating, attractive or fearsome place' ... Interesting points are made about familiar pieces, such as Carmen's versatility in Spanish, Cuban and flamenco music.' Peter Williams, Musical Times

Review of the hardback: 'A masterful study. ... Written in such an accessible way that non-specialist readers can easily relate to it, it will also be of great relevance to scholars working in related fields, such as literary criticism, theatre studies, cultural history and even social anthropology. ... A shining example of how musicologists can situate themselves in the context of global history. ... I recommend it unhesitatingly to all readers with an interest in how Western music situates itself in the world, and how the West attempts to represent the rest of the world through sound, text and image. Musical Exoticism should be the standard textbook on the subject for undergraduate music students, and a ready reference for anyone interested in the topic.' David R. M. Irving, Early Music

Review of the hardback: 'Locke's superb book will undoubtedly help amplify the horizons of scholarship in the ever-expanding area of musical exoticism, by exploring the pitfalls, proposing alternative interpretations, broadening the repertory under discussion and, ultimately, by heightening our understanding of our position as listeners and consumers.' Eftychia Papanikolaou, Assistant Professor of Musicology, Bowling Green State University

Présentation de l'éditeur :

A Japanese geisha, a Middle Eastern caravan, a Hungarian-'Gypsy' fiddler, Carmen flinging a rose at Don José - portrayals of people and places that are considered somehow 'exotic' have been ubiquitous from 1700 to today, whether in opera, Broadway musicals, instrumental music, film scores, or in jazz and popular song. Often these portrayals are highly stereotypical but also powerful, indelible and touching - or troubling. Musical Exoticism surveys the vast and varied repertoire of Western musical works that evoke exotic locales. It relates trends in musical exoticism to other trends in music, such as programme music and avant-garde experimentation, as well as to broader historical developments such as nationalism and empire. Ralph P. Locke outlines major trends in exotic depiction from the Baroque era onward, and illustrates these trends through close study of numerous exotic works, including operas by Handel and Rameau, Mozart's 'Rondo alla turca', 'Madame Butterfly' and 'West Side Story'.
