The Sight of Sound by Richard Leppert

Music, Representation and the History of the Body.

Lieder Ohne Worte

CITATION

“…Richard Leppert examines the social meaning of music as they have been shaped not only by hearing but also by seeing music in performance. His focus is the Northern European bourgeoisie, principally in England and the Low Countries, from 1600 to 1900, and his particular interest is the relation of music to the human body. He argues that musically practices, invariably linked to the body, are inseparable from the prevailing discourses of power, knowledge, identity, desire and sexuality…”
