Brahms Among Friends identifies patterns of listening, performance, and composition among close friends of Johannes Brahms and explores how those patterns informed the creation and reception of his music in the intimate genres of song, sonata, trio, and piano miniature. Among the tangled threads of counterpoint and circumstance that bound Brahms to his acquaintances was the technique of allusive musical borrowing, whereby a brief passage from a familiar work was drawn into the fabric of a new composition. For the specific listeners whose habits of mind and musicianship he knew best, allusive borrowings could become rhetorically charged gestures, persuasively revising the meanings his music conveyed and the interpretive strategies it invited. Primary documents, original manuscripts, music-analytic comparison, and kinesthetic parameters experienced in the act of performance all work in tandem to support ten case studies in the interplay between Brahms's small-scale works and the women and men who encountered them before publication. Central characters include violinist Joseph Joachim, singers Amalie Joachim, Julius Stockhausen, and Agathe von Siebold, composers Heinrich and Elisabeth von Herzogenberg, and pianists Emma Engelmann and Clara Schumann. For these musicians and for the composer himself, Brahms's allusive music served a broad variety of emotional needs and interpersonal ends. Yet across diverse repertoire and interdisciplinary correlates ranging from ethnography to psychoanalysis, each case study furthers a single, underlying aim: to reconstruct the mutually dependent perspectives of historically situated agents and restore forgotten features of their communicative landscapes as bases for both musical and historical scrutiny.

Opera for the People is an in-depth examination of a forgotten chapter in American social and cultural history: the love affair that middle-class Americans had with continental opera (translated into English) in the 1870s, 1880s, and 1890s. Author Katherine Preston reveals how-contrary to the existing historiography on the American musical culture of this period-English-language opera not only flourished in the United States during this time, but found its success significantly bolstered by the support of women impresarios, prima-donnas, managers, and philanthropists who provided financial backing to opera companies. This rich and compelling study details the lives and professional activities of several important players in American postbellum opera, including manager Effie Ober, philanthropist Jeannette Thurber, and performers/artistic directors Caroline Richings, Euphrosyne Parepa-Rosa, Clara Louise Kellogg, and "the people's prima donna" Emma Abbott. Drawing from an impressive range of primary sources, including contemporaneous music and theater periodicals, playbills, memoirs, librettos, scores, and reviews and commentary on the performances in digitized newspapers, Preston tells the story of how these and other women influenced the activities of some of the more than one hundred opera companies touring the United States during the second half of the 19th century, performing opera in English for a diverse range of audiences. Countering a pervasive and misguided historical understanding of opera reception in the United States-unduly influenced by modern attitudes about the genre as elite, exclusive, expensive, and of interest only to a niche market-Opera for the People demonstrates the important (and hitherto unsuspected) place of opera in the rich cornucopia of late-century American musical theatre, which would eventually lead to the emergence of American musical comedy.

Die Oper ist in vielerlei Hinsicht das außergewöhnlichste künstlerische Medium der letzten 400 Jahre: Opernhäuser, Ausstattung, Technik und nicht zuletzt die Künstler lassen sie zu einer nachgerade unerschwinglich teuren Kunstform werden – eine Kunstform, die zudem offenkundig unrealistisch ist. Und doch vermag nichts anderes menschliche Leidenschaften mit solch überwältigender Kraft, Dramatik und Gefühlsstärke auszudrücken wie gerade die Oper. Dieses Buch – seit langem die erste einbändige und zugleich umfassende Gesamtdarstellung zu diesem Thema – liest sich wie eine Ode an die Oper selbst. Seine beiden Autoren stellen zahlreiche Werke der bekanntesten Opernkomponisten vor: von Monteverdi, Händel und Mozart über Verdi, Wagner, Strauss und Puccini bis zu Berg und Britten. Sie bieten einen anschaulichen, oft amüsanten und stets informativen Überblick über die sozialen und politischen Hintergründe der jeweiligen Kompositionen, beziehen deren literarische Kontexte und die wirtschaftlichen Verhältnisse mit ein, unter denen sie entstanden sind, und vernachlässigen auch nicht die Polemiken, die das Operngeschehen über die Jahrhunderte kontinuierlich begleitet haben. Auch wenn inzwischen die beliebtesten und langlebigsten Werke aus einer längst vergangenen Epoche stammen, deren Lebensumstände uns heute völlig fremd sind – und auch wenn die zeitgenössische Oper heutzutage auf den Bühnen kaum eine Rolle spielt –, so hat die Oper doch nichts an Reiz, Lebendigkeit und Attraktion eingebüßt. Heute wie vor 400 Jahren lässt sie das Publikum Tränen vergießen, zischen, heftig debattieren oder in Begeisterungsstürme ausbrechen. In dieser Wirkungsmacht übertrifft sie jede andere Kunstform.
