About the Authors
  • Music criticism has played a fundamental and influential role throughout music history, with numerous composers such as Berlioz, Schumann, and Wagner, as well as many contemporary musicians, also maintaining careers as writers and critics. The Cambridge History of Music Criticism goes beyond these better-known accounts, reaching back to medieval times, expanding the geographical reach both within and beyond Europe, and including key issues such as women and criticism of recordings, as well as the story of criticism in jazz, popular music and world music. Drawing on a blend of established and talented young scholars, this is the first substantial historical survey of music criticism and critics, bringing unprecedented scope to a rapidly expanding area of musicological research. An indispensable point of reference, The Cambridge History of Music Criticism provides a broad historical overview of the field while also addressing specific issues and events.

    • Expands the boundaries of what the study of music criticism might encompass, giving a much needed perspective on a rapidly growing area of musicology
    • Goes beyond previous studies of music criticism, with a significantly broader timeframe, more extensive geographical reach and the inclusion of a wide range of themes
    • Provides a catalyst to new areas of study in the field of music criticism by introducing the latest thinking and provocations in the field
