Clementi and the Woman at the Piano by Erin Helyard
This book takes as its historical point of departure the radical appearance in 1779 of technically difficult keyboard music in a set of six sonatas (Op. 2) by Muzio Clementi. The passages contained in this opus are unique, published for a market that was understood at the time to consist almost entirely of female amateur keyboardists. Previously actively discouraged from practicing or improving their skills due to the restrictive ideologies in place, Clementi’s music increasingly affords female pianists a new kind of musical expression.
Reading Byron by Bernard Beatty
Reading Byron is the product and summation of nearly sixty years devoted to studying and teaching his poetry. It argues that, far from being ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’, Byron is serious, ethically orientated and rewarding to read. The book is in three parts: Poems – Life – Politics. Five new essays have been written especially for the first and largest section, which provides fresh perspectives on Byron’s major works.
Opera and British Print Culture in the Long Nineteenth Century by Christina Fuhrmann and Alison Mero
This collection embeds opera within the culture of Britain in the long nineteenth century, a culture inundated by print. The essays explore how print culture both disseminated and shaped operatic culture and how the businesses of opera production and publishing intertwined; not only drawing source material from novels and plays, but also as a plot element in literary works or as a point of friction in literary circles.
