European Itinerant Opera and Operetta Companies Touring in the Near and Middle East

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The Music Road has been called 'an extraordinary , effective contribution towards the establishment of a non-hierarchical musicology, the result of an equal dialogue between different musicological and historical perspectives'. Based on research for the Balzan Musicology Project 'Towards a global history of music' and supported by the Balzan Prize for Musicology, most of the chapters have been prepared by mid-career musicologists and ethnomusicologists for workshop conferences in 2016 and 2017. As advocated by Martin Stokes in his keynote chapter on ethnomusicology and the Middle East, the book demonstrates the changes of historical thought in ethnomusicology. It also proves the benefits of anthropological approaches to music history.
