The world of international politics has recently been rocked by a seemingly endless series of scandals involving auditory surveillance: the NSA's warrantless wiretapping is merely the most sensational example of what appears to be a universal practice today. What is the source of this generalized principle of eavesdropping? All Ears: The Aesthetics of Espionage traces the long history of moles from the Bible, through Jeremy Bentham's "panacoustic" project, all the way to the intelligence-gathering network called "Echelon." Together with this archeology of auditory surveillance, Szendy offers an engaging account of spycraft's representations in literature (Sophocles, Shakespeare, Joyce, Kafka, Borges), opera (Monteverdi, Mozart, Berg), and film (Lang, Hitchcock, Coppola, De Palma). Following in the footsteps of Orpheus, the book proposes a new concept of "overhearing" that connects the act of spying to an excessive intensification of listening. At the heart of listening Szendy locates the ear of the Other that manifests itself as the originary division of a "split-hearing" that turns the drive for mastery and surveillance into the death drive.

"Sen-nen ? prénom japonais dont la signification ne se révélera que tardivement ? est marié à Mathilde, une Française. Ancien professeur de littérature française dans une université à Tokyo, Sen-nen vit désormais à Paris avec sa femme, atteinte d'une grave maladie qui l'oblige à garder la chambre. Tous deux mélomanes, ils se sont connus lors d'un stage de musique en France. Bien avant cela, à Paris, Sen-nen avait fait la rencontre capitale d'une cantatrice, Clémence, qui chantait Suzanne dans Les Noces de Figaro. Ébloui, il avait assisté à toutes les représentations et s'était lié d'amitié avec elle. Des années plus tard, alors qu'il l'a perdue de vue, il reçoit un message de Clémence : Les Noces sont redonnées à l'Opéra, dans la mise en scène originelle qu'elle est chargée de superviser. Mathilde laisse son mari aller à la rencontre du passé, pour une longue conversation dans laquelle la musique et l'amour tiendront une place centrale."--Page 4 of cover.

"L'union des arts, leur ouverture au plus grand nombre sont au coeur du projet de régénération porté par les révolutionnaires français. Le théâtre connaît alors un véritable âge d'or, comme en témoignent la multiplication des salles et l'émergence de quantité de nouveaux talents, chez les auteurs comme chez les comédiens, chez les professionnels comme chez les amateurs. Au nom du projet émancipateur de la République, les conventionnels élèvent le théâtre au rang d'"école primaire pour adultes". Des débats sur son utilité pédagogique animent les Assemblées, le Comité de salut public, les clubs, les sociétés, les journaux, au risque d'une censure qui échappe aux seuls critiques, et dont sont volontiers partie prenante les spectateurs C'est ce foisonnement sans précédent que fait revivre Philippe Bourdin dans cette fresque captivante consacrée aux arts de la scène sous la Révolution. Un rayonnement notamment associé aux noms d'André Chénier, Chamfort, Fabre d'Églantine, Olympe de Gouges. L'incarnation des gloires républicaines se fait certes par le geste mais tout autant par le verbe. Minoritaire mais conquérant, le théâtre patriotique met en scène des personnages-orateurs: représentants du peuple, maires, officiers, instituteurs, curés patriotes ou, plus simplement, pères et mères de famille anonymes. Ils usent d'un discours de justification, de l'éloge, de la célébration, pour construire sur le vif de l'événement une légende nationale immédiate, un héroïsme à partager."--Page 4 of cover.

"Compositeur d'un grand nombre d'opere serie, d'oratorios et d'oeuvres de musique sacrée, Balsassare Galuppi est peu à peu tombé dans l'oubli. Si son nom est néanmoins connu aujourd'hui encore, c'est principalement grâce à son oeuvre pour clavier. La réédition récente de la partition d'un opera buffa L'Inimico delle donne ainsi que la première mondiale de cette production par l'Opéra royal de Wallonie, ont suscité l'organisation d'un colloque international dont cet ouvrage est le fruit. Il s'articule autour de trois thèmes principaux : Galuppi le "Buranello" (du nom de son île natale, Burano, au nord de la lagune de Venise), Galuppi et l'opéra, et Galuppi et la musique instrumentale et religieuse."--Page 4 of cover.

Simon Callow plunges headlong into Wagner's world to discover what it was like to be Wagner, and to be around one of music's most influential figures. The perfect introduction to the Master. A hundred and thirty-five years after his death, Richard Wagner's music dramas stand at the centre of the culture of classical music. They have never been more popular, nor so violently controversial and divisive. His music is still banned in Israel - the only classical composer whose music is banned in the western world. His ten great mature masterpieces constitute an unmatched body of work, created against a backdrop of poverty, revolution, violent controversy, critical contempt and hysterical hero-worship. As a man, he was a walking contradiction, aggressive, flirtatious, disciplined, capricious, heroic, visionary and poisonously anti-Semitic. At one point, he had four lengthy operas written with no hope of being performed when, as if in a fairy-tale, he was rescued by a beautiful young king with limitless wealth which he bestowed on the composer. When one of those works, Tristan and Isolde, was at last performed, it revolutionised classical music at a stroke. Finally he fulfilled his lifelong dream of creating a vast epic to rival the work of the great Greek playwrights, a music drama in four massive segments, ushering gods and dwarves, heroes and thugs, dragons and rainbows onto the stage, the apotheosis of German art as he saw it, so extreme in its demands that he had to train a generation of singers and players to perform it, and erect a custom-built theatre to house it. Wagner died, exhausted, after creating one final piece - Parsifal - that seems to point to an even more radical new future for music. Simon Callow recalls the intellectual and artistic climate in which Wagner worked, recording the almost superhuman effort required to create his work, and evoking the extraordinary effect he had on people - this composer like no other who ever lived, extreme in everything, creator of the most sublime and most troubling body of work ever known.

English music studies often apply rigid classifications to musical materials, their uses, their consumers, and performers. The contributors to this volume argue that some performers and manuscripts from the early modern era defy conventional categorization as "amateur" or "professional, " "native" or "foreign." These leading scholars explore the circulation of music and performers in early modern England, reconsidering previously held ideas about the boundaries between locations of musical performance and practice.

Beyond Reason relates Wagner's works to the philosophical and cultural ideas of his time, centering on the four music dramas he created in the second half of his career: Der Ring des Nibelungen, Tristan und Isolde, Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, and Parsifal. Karol Berger seeks to penetrate the "secret" of large-scale form in Wagner's music dramas and to answer those critics, most prominently Nietzsche, who condemned Wagner for his putative inability to weld small expressive gestures into larger wholes. Organized by individual opera, this is essential reading for both musicologists and Wagner experts.

The Chinatown opera house provided Chinese immigrants with an essential source of entertainment during the pre "World War II era. But its stories of loyalty, obligation, passion, and duty also attracted diverse patrons into Chinese American communities Drawing on a wealth of new Chinese- and English-language research, Nancy Yunhwa Rao tells the story of iconic theater companies and the networks and migrations that made Chinese opera a part of North American cultures. Rao unmasks a backstage world of performers, performance, and repertoire and sets readers in the spellbound audiences beyond the footlights. But she also braids a captivating and complex history from elements outside the opera house walls: the impact of government immigration policy; how a theater influenced a Chinatown's sense of cultural self; the dissemination of Chinese opera music via recording and print materials; and the role of Chinese American business in sustaining theatrical institutions. The result is a work that strips the veneer of exoticism from Chinese opera, placing it firmly within the bounds of American music and a profoundly American experience.

This collection of some 32 articles and essays by Adrian Rifkin were written over a period of forty years. It contains innovative and influential studies of the archives of art, urbanism, music and popular life in France and Britain during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Arranged around a number of studies of the representation of the Paris Commune, the book also contains chapters on Edith Piaf's role in French culture, histories of art education, opera and queer life in the city as well as analytical accounts of the commodity and cultural theory in Adorno and Benjamin. An extended introduction by Steve Edwards works over the questions of uneven time in Marxist cultural theory and the disciplinary formations that underpin many of Rifkin's essays.

"Située au carrefour de l'un des couloirs maritimes les plus fréquentés au monde, la communauté des pêcheurs vietnamiens a hérité, au fil du temps, de diverses influences culturelles qui lui ont donné une culture maritime unique. Cette dernière se traduit en termes religieux par des pratiques composites au croisement d'influences chinoises, indiennes et austronésiennes. Issus des observances relevant de la synthèse culturelle qui s'est opérée dans la région, le culte de la baleine s'est imposé ces dernières années comme étant le plus attractif des cultes traditionnels vietnamiens, avec des cérémonies qui attirent chaque année des milliers de fidèles dans les villages de pêche. Bien plus qu'une simple religion, il a progressivement évolué pour devenir le principal composant de la société des pêcheurs. Ce culte qui vénère un mammifère marin a entraîné dans son sillage, au gré des évolutions historique et politique du Vietnam, des comportements religieux qui ont façonné le quotidien des pêcheurs. Ainsi, pour chaque échouage de baleine, un "fils de la baleine" est nommé pour porter le deuil, et les carcasses des animaux sont enterrées avec soin en attendant le temps du recueillement. Les cérémonies du culte constituent un moment clé dans l'année, moment où tous les pêcheurs se retrouvent et rendent hommage aux squelettes des baleines échouées. Abri d'une littérature religieuse orale et écrite, le temple de la baleine est également l'un des derniers lieux qui abritent encore l'opéra classique vietnamien."--Page 4 of cover.

Cultural Histories of Noise, Sound and Listening in Europe, 1300-1918 presents a range of historical case studies on the sounding worlds of the European past. The chapters in this volume explore ways of thinking about sound historically, and seek to understand how people have understood and negotiated their relationships with the sounding world in Europe from the Middle Ages through to the early twentieth century. They consider, in particular: sound and music in the later Middle Ages; the politics of sound in the early modern period; the history of the body and perception during the Ancien Regime; and the sounds of the city in the nineteenth century and sound and colonial rule at the fin de siecle. The case studies also range in geographical orientation to include considerations not only of Britain and France, the countries most considered in European historical sound studies in English-language scholarship to date, but also Bosnia-Herzegovina, British Colonial India, Germany, Italy and Portugal. Out of this diverse group of case studies emerge significant themes that recur time and again, varying according to time and place: sound, power and identity; sound as a marker of power or violence; and sound, physiology and sensory perception and technologies of sound, consumption and meaning.
