Herausgegeben von Karl-Maria Guth. Berlin 2015. Umschlaggestaltung von Thomas Schultz-Overhage. Gesetzt aus Minion Pro, 11 pt. Über den Autor: 1813 in Leipzig als das neunte Kind eines Polizisten geboren, wird Richard Wagner zu einer die Musik beherrschenden Persönlichkeit des 19. Jahrhunderts. Ein bewegtes Leben lässt ihn vor politischer Verfolgung wie auch vor seinen Gläubigern in zahlreichen Orten Zuflucht suchen. Nach Stationen u.a. in Königsberg, Riga, London, Paris, und in der Schweiz kommt Wagner schließlich in Bayreuth an, das bis heute untrennbar mit seinem Namen verbunden ist. Seine finanziellen Schwierigkeiten hat der selbstbewußte Mann von kleinem Wuchs als »lächerliche Schulden« empfunden, denen erheblich größere »Aktiva« gegenüberstünden. Und in der Tat ist seine Wirkungsmacht auf die ihm nachfolgende Musik wohl einzigartig. Zu einer umstrittenen Figur ist Richard Wagner wegen seiner Auslegbarkeit im Sinne des Nationalsozialismus geworden, der er maßgeblich durch seine antisemitische Schrift »Das Judenthum in der Musik« Vorschub geleistet hat.

Eine glänzende Erzählung lässt uns die Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts über seine Musik neu erleben. Alex Ross, Kritiker des »New Yorker«, bringt uns aus dem Wien und Graz am Vorabend des Ersten Weltkriegs ins Paris und Berlin der Goldenen Zwanzigerjahre, aus Hitler-Deutschland über Russland ins Amerika der Sechziger- und Siebzigerjahre. Er führt uns durch ein labyrinthisches Reich, von Jean Sibelius bis Lou Reed, von Gustav Mahler bis Björk. Und wir folgen dem Aufstieg der Massenkultur wie der Politik der Massen, den dramatischen Veränderungen durch neue Techniken genauso wie den Kriegen, Experimenten, Revolutionen und Aufständen der zurückliegenden 100 Jahre. »Eine unwiderstehliche Einladung, sich mit den großen Themen des 20. Jahrhunderts zu beschäftigen.« Fritz Stern

This new collection views Russian music through the Greek triad of “the Good, the True, and the Beautiful” to investigate how the idea of "nation" embeds itself in the public discourse about music and other arts with results at times invigorating, at times corrupting. In our divided, post–Cold War, and now post–9/11 world, Russian music, formerly a quiet corner on the margins of musicology, has become a site of noisy contention. Richard Taruskin assesses the political and cultural stakes that attach to it in the era of Pussy Riot and renewed international tensions, before turning to individual cases from the nineteenth century to the present. Much of the volume is devoted to the resolutely cosmopolitan but inveterately Russian Igor Stravinsky, one of the major forces in the music of the twentieth century and subject of particular interest to composers and music theorists all over the world. Taruskin here revisits him for the first time since the 1990s, when everything changed for Russia and its cultural products. Other essays are devoted to the cultural and social policies of the Soviet Union and their effect on the music produced there as those policies swung away from Communist internationalism to traditional Russian nationalism; to the musicians of the Russian postrevolutionary diaspora; and to the tension between the compelling artistic quality of works such as Stravinsky’s Sacre du Printemps or Prokofieff’s Zdravitsa and the antihumanistic or totalitarian messages they convey. Russian Music at Home and Abroad addresses these concerns in a personal and critical way, characteristically demonstrating Taruskin’s authority and ability to bring living history out of the shadows.

Philip Bullock looks at the life and works of Rosa Newmarch (1857-1940), the leading authority on Russian music and culture in late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century England. As an inveterate traveller, prolific author, and polyglot friend of some of Europe's leading musicians, such as Elgar, Sibelius, Janácek, Newmarch deserves to be better appreciated. Drawing on both published and archival materials, the details of Newmarch's busy life are revealed, followed by an overview of English interest in Russian culture around the turn of the century. The main focus of the book is on the themes that dominated Newmarch's engagement with Russian culture and society: nationalism, the role of the intelligentsia and feminism.
