Item description for The Eighteenth-Century Diaspora of Italian Music and Musicians (Speculum Musicae) by Reinhard Strohm...

On an eighteenth-century map of European culture, Italian musicians would be found almost everywhere. Unlike in earlier ages, they now provided an intrinsic part of the international exchange: no longer exotic birds, but not yet the representatives of a single nation, they helped other Europeans to forget traditional frontiers in music. In this fascinating book, eight specialised music historians investigate several important aspects of the Italian contribution, highlighting local musical practices, the aesthetic of genres, and the larger patterns of musical cultivation and patronage. REINHARD STROHM, Introduction; REINHARD STROHM, Italian Operisti North of the Alps, c. 1700 - c. 1750; NORBERT DUBOWY, Italienische Instrumentalisten in deutschen Hofkapellen; THEOPHIL ANTONICEK, sterreich: Ein gelobtes Land der italienischen Musik; SIMON MCVEIGH, Italian Violinists in Eighteenth-Century London; RUDOLF RASCH, The Italian Presence in the Musical Life of the Dutch Republic; MARINA RITZAREV (RITZAREVA) AND ANNA PORFIRIEVA, The Italian Diaspora in Eighteenth-Century Russia; ELENA CERANINI, La canzonetta italiana nella vita musicale londinese di fine Settecento; MICHELE CALELLA, Rivoluzioni e querelles: la musica italiana alla conquista dell'Opra.
