About this product
- DescriptionListening and Longing explores the emergence of music listening in the United States, from its early stages in the antebellum era, when entrepreneurs first packaged and sold the experience of hearing musical performance, to the Gilded Age, when genteel critics began to successfully redefine the cultural value of listening to music. In a series of interconnected stories, American studies scholar Daniel Cavicchi focuses on the impact of industrialization, urbanization, and commercialization in shaping practices of music audiences in America. Grounding our contemporary culture of listening in its seminal historical moment-before the iPod, stereo system, or phograph-Cavicchi offers a fresh understanding of the role of listening in the history of music.
- Author BiographyDANIEL CAVICCHI is an associate professor of American studies and head of the Department of History, Philosophy, and the Social Sciences at Rhode Island School of Design.
