Music in Ibero-America To 1850: A Historical Survey

Overview

When Latin Americans think of high art they do so primarily in terms of literature and the visual arts. In addition, the study of the first three centuries has until recently taken the back seat in the standard literature dealing with the music of that part of the world. This trend must be reversed for the lands south of the border to arrive at a broader understanding of their place in the world culture. This book attempts to redress the situation by providing the curious layman and the serious researcher with ...

Overview

When Latin Americans think of high art they do so primarily in terms of literature and the visual arts. In addition, the study of the first three centuries has until recently taken the back seat in the standard literature dealing with the music of that part of the world. This trend must be reversed for the lands south of the border to arrive at a broader understanding of their place in the world culture. This book attempts to redress the situation by providing the curious layman and the serious researcher with the tools to further clarify the role of cultivated music in the early life of the Ibero-American countries. It surveys the available historical data on personalities, events, and institutions that shaped the history of art music in Ibero-America (that is, its Spanish-speaking countries and Brazil) between the arrival of the Europeans in 1492 and 1850. This study of Music and Music Activities in Ibero-America to 1850 emphasizes historical data rather than musical analysis. Folk and popular music are mentioned only to the extent that they have affected the cultivated strains of Ibero-American music. Of interest to music historians and students of Ibero-American culture.

Editorial Reviews

Luso-Brazilian Review
...fills an important lacuna, in presenting a broad historical survey of the cultivation of music in Latin America from its discovery and settlement by Europeans to the beginnings of the modern age in 1850....Mendoza de Arce has made an important contribution in presenting in English so much information that was hitherto inaccessible to those who do not read Spanish and Portuguese, and indeed this book is indispensable for those interested in the musical history of the Western hemisphere.
Notes: Quarterly Journal of Music Library Association
...an extensive and detailed summary of the entire range of European and Creole musical life in Spanish and Portuguese America...no other publication has ever covered the colonial and early independent periods in Latin America with the same immense breadth of geographical coverage...Music in Ibero-America to 1850 is a pioneering effort that is certain to be of use to a wide range of individuals and institutions and should spark additional interest in the topic.

This handsomely-bound volume explores the music brought to the American continent by people of Iberian descent as well as other immigrants who settled in the areas controlled by Spain and Portugal. The focus is on the cultivated (rather than the popular) music that developed in these areas between 1492 and the middle of the 19th century. Mendoza de Arce (formerly Hispanic studies and sociology, Governors State U., Illinois) discusses cathedral, secular, orchestral, military, and theatrical music in three major time periods and in different geographical regions. Coverage extends to music education, business, and printing. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
