Biographies – Index of Names


"Verdi Reception provides a handy and coherent summary of the state of modern European scholarship on Verdi's reception and influence in Europe (...). Further, the volume is stimulating both as a piece of finished research, and in its implications for future work, with its fusion of a diverse range of methodological approaches across musicology and cultural studies. Verdi Reception has much to offer readers interested in cultural and musicological approaches to nineteenth-century opera, in Verdi's reception and legacy, and in the reception of artworks across cultural boundaries."
