Meet the Author

Bruce Benward has been widely regarded as one of the most gifted music theory pedagogues since his textbooks first appeared in the 1960s, and has exerted a wide influence on the teaching of music theory both through his writings and through the generation of teachers that he taught. He recently retired from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

Maureen A. Carr, professor of music theory, is the recipient of the 2005 Penn State Faculty Scholar Medal for Outstanding Achievement in the Arts and Humanities. Carr received her award for her books, Multiple Masks: Neoclassicism in Stravinsky's Dramatic Works on Greek Subjects (University of Nebraska Press, 2002) and Stravinsky's Histoire du soldat (A-R Editions, 2005), which position her as an authority on Stravinsky's musical sketches and one of the leading scholars on the music of Stravinsky.

Her research has been conducted primarily in Switzerland at the Paul Sacher Stiftung in Basel. In addition, she has worked at archives in Winterthur, Lausanne, London and Paris. She has received grants from the Penn State Institute for the Arts and Humanities, the College of Arts and Architecture, the American Association of University Women and Pro Helvetia. She has presented papers at national and international conferences in Belgium, England and Ireland (June, 2005). This summer, she will continue her research in European archives, for a new book addressing the collaboration between Stravinsky and Picasso for Pulcinella. In the Fall semester, she will be in residence at the Penn State Institute for the Arts and Humanities. She will present her research on Pulcinella at the 2005 meeting of theAmerican Musicological Society in Washington, D. C.

Carr has a B. A. from Marywood College, an M.F.A. from Rutgers and a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She has served on several national and regional committees related to the field of music theory. In 1995, she received the College of Arts and Architecture's Outstanding Teaching Award. In 1998, she was named a Distinguished Alumna by the University at Madison School of Music and in 2004 received a Marywood University Professional Achievement Award.
