9780810852839: An Index to Music Published in The Etude Magazine, 1883-1957 (MLA Index and Bibliography Series)

The Etude magazine was established in 1883 by Theodore Presser with $250 saved from his income as a music teacher. The subsequent history of the magazine and the Theodore Presser Company is one of the great entrepreneurial success stories of American music. The Etude remains one of the longest-lived music magazines in American history and is still a ubiquitous presence in flea markets and online auctions.

In the early years, each issue published roughly five or six musical scores, but by the 1930's there were upwards of twenty compositions published each month. The resulting list of repertoire comprises well over 10,000 musical compositions in an eclectic range of styles and difficulty levels. The major composers of Western art music appear side by side with a broad range of popular composers, including a strong representation of American and female composers.

This rich resource has never been indexed and has thus been virtually inaccessible to scholars and performers, who now have access to three quarters of a century of music in this valuable repository of scores.

About the Author:

E. Douglas Bomberger is Professor and Chair of Musicology at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.

Review:

Highly recommended. General and academic libraries. (CHOICE)

One of the longest-lived music magazines in American history, The Etude printed over 10,000 musical compositions over the course of its publishing history (1883-1957). Presenting an eclectic range of styles and levels of difficulty, the editors placed major composers of Western art music side by side with popular composers. This reference volume contains a chronological listing of the musical contents of each issue of The Etude. These entries are then indexed by composer, title, text author (if applicable), and instrumentation. (Reference and Research Book News)

Bomberger...has provided an invaluable snapshot of musical taste during seventy-five years of American history as well as the meticulous spadework of providing access to both obscure works and composers.... This volume will be invaluable to music libraries... (vol. 62 Notes: Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, December 2005)

The utility of this index is not to be underestimated, for a wealth of information on America's musical culture is truly reflected in its pages....highly recommended... (Music Reference Services Quarterly, 2005 (vol 9, no 3))
