Abstract

Trouble Songs is a hybrid serial work that tracks the appearance of the word “trouble” in 20th- and 21st-century American music. It reads (and sings) songs and poems, with reference to cultural events ranging from the death of a pop singer to the growth of popular resistance movements. The trouble singer invokes the word “trouble” in place of actual trouble—the song is a spell that conjures trouble (from bad luck and disaffection to infidelity, impotence, destitution, and the specter of death) in a temporary form that can be dis-spelled, if only for the length of the song. Singer and song also open a critical space for making trouble, for stirring the heart and mind. This space is a disjunction in time (and a superimposition of events) where singer and listener collaborate on meaning (un/)making as they temporarily transform trouble.

Abstract

This volume, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name, honours Leopold Mozart (1719-1787), who was not only a musician, composer and teacher, but also a well-informed observer of his time. His letters contain numerous details on music and cultural-historical themes, and his notes on his stay in the summer residence of Schwetzingen in the Palatinate are invaluable. The authors investigate this information and relate it to the knowledge of their respective disciplines. The result is a comprehensive picture of the Electoral Palatinate summer residence of 1763, a music-historical focal point in the third quarter of the eighteenth century.
