Francophone Music Criticism
This website provides a portal to two collections of resources for researchers interested in music criticism and in the more general musical culture of the nineteenth century in France :
- a repository of digitized, searchable reviews relating to French music and ballet in the nineteenth century. Texts are grouped into collections devoted to particular works, events, series, performers or authors, resulting in a significant corpus of texts never before available on open access.
- bibliographical resources and work in progress of a more general nature, contributed by members of the Network and mounted in the hope that users will contribute updates.
The project is managed by the joint directors of the former AHRC-funded Network in Francophone Music Criticism, 1789 - 1914, Katharine Ellis (Royal Holloway, University of London/former Director, Institute of Musical Research) and Mark Everist (University of Southampton). It is hosted by the Institute of Musical Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London.
