Seeing Through Music

Gender and Modernism in Classic Hollywood Film Scores

Peter Franklin

Oxford Music / Media

  • Brings detailed music-historical knowledge to bear upon cinema music
  • Draws film into music history as much as to draw music into film history
  • Explores the discourse of gender, not only as applied to film and mass culture, but also as applied to late-romantic European opera and concert music
  • Offers conclusions about the problematic aspects of musical modernism and some arguably liberating aspects of 'late-romanticism'.
