9780199892679: Dreams of Love: Playing the Romantic Pianist
Review:

"Ivan Raykoff knows everything there is to know about why concert pianists - from Franz Liszt to Glenn Gould and from Clara Schumann to Martha Argerich - can be so damned sexy. And like a performance by Rachmaninoff of, say, his own Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Dreams of Love by Raykoff is a brilliantly conceived and beautifully rendered arrangement of all that knowledge."--Kevin Kopelson, University of Iowa "In Dreams of Love Ivan Raykoff gives us a poetics of the concert pianist as a cultural figure of desire. He weds a graceful command of cultural theory to colorful histories of pianists' "sound-bodies" and technologies parallel to the piano, and he opens us to a world of piano movies, songs, and novels almost too rich to comprehend."-- James Parakilas, Bates College "Exhaustively documented... It can be strongly recommended as a study in popular culture and the history of technology as well as music history." --ClassicalNet"A fascinating and engaging book from beginning to end." --CHOICE

From the Publisher:

The Romantic pianist—the solo pianist who plays nineteenth-century piano music—has become an attractive figure in the popular imagination, considering the innumerable artworks, literature, and films representing this performer's seductive allure. Dreams of Love pursues a wide-ranging interdisciplinary approach to understanding the "romantic" pianist as a cultural icon, focusing on the role of technology in producing and perpetuating this mythology over the past two centuries. Sound recording and cinema have shaped the pianist's music and image since the early twentieth century, but these contemporary media technologies build upon practices established during the early nineteenth century: the influence of the piano keyboard on early telegraphs and typewriters, the invention of the solo recital alongside developments in photography, and the ways that piano design and the placement of the instrument on stage structure our viewing-listening perspectives. The concept of technology can be broadened to include the performance of gender and sexuality as further ways of making the pianist into an attractive cultural figure. The book's three sections deal with the touch, sights, and sounds of the Romantic pianist's playing as mediated through various forms of technology. Analyzing these persistent Liebesträume and exploring how they function can reveal their meaning for performers, audiences, and music lovers of the past and present too.

Descripción OUP USA, 2014. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 15.6 x 23.5 cm. "Dreams of Love: Playing the Romantic Pianist explores the attractions of the concert pianist from an innovative interdisciplinary perspective, demonstrating how such meanings have evolved over two centuries through technology and the popular media, including literature and cinema. Author Ivan Raykoff uses romantic both as the label for a historical era and musical style, as well as the more colloquial adjective referring to love, desire, and sensual feeling. Through this two-fold interpretive approach, music history and cultural mythology are read alongside one another to reveal the interconnected processes of music's social mediation. The word playing also invites multiple readings: performance or practicing, as pastime or profession, as play-acting and other modes of representation, or reproduction like a player piano. The Romantic pianist signifies more than just music; through established rituals and familiar representations of practicing, performing, and listening, the pianist also plays within a larger system of cultural ideology linking music to aspects of gender, sexuality, personal identity and social relationships, and the politics of the body."
