About the Author

Reinhard Strohm studied musicology, violin, Latin, and Romance languages in Munich, Pisa, Milan and Berlin, and obtained his PhD in 1971 at the TU Berlin. In 1970–1982 he collaborated on a critical edition of the works of Richard Wagner. He taught at King’s College London, UK, in 1975–1983 and 1990–1996, was Professor of Musicology at Yale University, USA, in 1983–1990, and Heather Professor of Music at Oxford University, UK, in 1996–2007. Visiting professorships were held at Chicago, Rome, Vienna, Budapest, Zurich, and Hamburg. Awards include the Dent Medal (RMA) in 1977 and the Balzan Prize (for Musicology) in 2012. Strohm’s research focuses on European music ca.1400–ca.1800, the history of opera, historiography, and postmodern criticism of musicology.
