Consuming Music

Individuals, Institutions, Communities, 1730–1830

Catherine Mayes, Ed. Emily H Green

This collection of essays addresses questions about consumers of music in the long 18th century: who bought music, how did they know what was available and who shaped the public’s musical tastes? The contributors investigate publishers’ commercial and promotional strategies, the popularity of Hungarian dances on the Viennese market and the roles played by critics, celebrities and amateur performers in the growth of musical consumerism.
