French Music, Culture, and National Identity, 1870-1939

«Advances an interpretive line that comes through with crystal clarity. . . . Music history and history tout court have more often than not pursued parallel paths, the one uninformed by the other. . . . The present volume will carry this conversation a valuable step further, and for this it deserves the gratitude of historians and musicologists alike.»

New, insightful essays from musicologists, historians, art historians, and literary scholars reconsider the relationship of Debussy, Gauguin, Zola, and other great French creative artists to cultural and political trends during the Third Republic.

This collection of new essays examines the relationships between discourses of French national and regional identity, political alignment, and creative practice during one of France's most fascinating eras: the Third Republic.
The authors, from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, explore the ways in which the architects of the Third Republic [re]constructed France culturally and artistically, in part through artful use of the press and [at the 1889Paris World's Fair] new technologies. The chapters also investigate changing attitudes toward Debussy's opera Pelléas et Mélisande, attempts by composers and critics to define a musical canon, and the impact of religious education, spirituality, and exoticism for Gauguin and Jolivet. Tensions between the center and region are seen in celebrations for the national musical figurehead, Rameau, and in the cultural regionalism that flourished in the annexed territories of Alsace and Lorraine.

Contributors: Edward Berenson, Katharine Ellis, Annegret Fauser, Didier Francfort, Brian Hart, Steven Huebner, Barbara L. Kelly, Detmar Klein, Deborah Mawer, James Ross, Marion Schmid, and Debora Silverman.

Barbara L. Kelly is Professor of Musicology at Keele University.

Philip Nord, H-FRANCE REVIEW

«A compelling statement about the complexity of relationship between politics and art, culture and national identity, especially in fin-de siècle France, but also in many places and times besides. . . . [Individual chapters are] detailed and nuanced; concise, well-argued, and thoroughly documented. . . . The volume is historically rooted in the best ways. . . . The exploration of this ambivalence [at the time, about how French nationalism should be reflected in music] makes for a powerful statement. Accessible to musicologists and historians alike. A model for exploring the often-repeated, yet open-ended connections between music and politics, culture and identity.»

Sindhumathi Revuluri, JOURNAL OF MUSICOLOGICAL RESEARCH

«Excellent essays by a lively mix of writers in different historical disciplines.... An indispensable source for anyone fascinated by fin-de-siècle France. -- Carlo Caballero (University of Colorado), author of Fauré and French Musical Aesthetics»
