Approaches to Monteverdi

Aesthetic, Psychological, Analytical and Historical Studies
Kurtzman, Jeffrey
Date published: 
July 2013

This volume gathers together twelve essays on the composer’s music, reflecting the author's interests in aesthetic and psychological issues, the sacred works, methods of structural analysis, and the problems of making critical editions. All but one of these essays was originally published over a time span of twenty years in journals, conference reports, Festschriften, and as book chapters. The majority of them were not widely distributed or readily available until now. The essay on the Malipiero and Cremona editions appears here for the first time.
