Reviews

"A significant book, which usefully applies gender studies to a previously neglected period of music history."--Laura Hamer"Women's History Review" (10/13/2013)
"Head's contribution is most welcome . . . for the light that it sheds on a cultural field that was every bit as significant as literature and art."-- (01/22/2014)
"Well-written and engaging . . . a significant contribution to the musicological discourse on gender."-- (10/01/2014)
"A work filled with wisdom about the "strangeness of the past" . . . [a] splendid book."-- (06/01/2015)
"Matthew Head's collection is an admirable and worthy example of what one might call a Bildungsaufsatzsammlung, an essay-collection (rather than a novel) of experience."--The European Legacy
