Research Interests

I specialize in the political and cultural history of Spanish music from the late 19th century to the present. Within this context, themes that have interested me over the years and which I have developed through different extents in my publications include: exile and displacement; memory; music criticism and journalism; music and war; recording technologies; art song, zarzuela and vocality; historical performance practice; history of reception; history of Spanish musicology; the Spanish avant-garde.

Research Projects

Between January 2018 and June 2019 I was Principal Investigator in an AHRC-funded Leadership Fellowship  on early recording cultures in Spain (1880-1905). Focusing on the so-called gabinetes fonográficos, which produced and sold their own recordings, the project seeks to (a) produce the first critical account of the early history of phonography in Spain (1880 to 1905); (b) in doing so, set the foundations of a transnational, context-sensitive understanding of the early history of musical recordings, fully integrating both local specificities and issues of national identity, memory, affection, mobility, modernity and others. I am currently putting the finishing touches on a monograph titled Inventing the recording: The phonograph and national culture in Spain, 1877-1914 is currently well underway, and I have started work on a further book provisionally titled Recording zarzuela, 1898-1960: Canonizing national musical theatre, which draws upon my expertise on the cultural history of early recordings but moves more decidedly towards historical performance practice issues. 

Before that, I published two books on music and culture under Francoism. Music and Exile in Francoist Spain analyses the connections of Spanish exiled composers with their homeland throughout 1939-1975. Taking the diversity and heterogeneity of the Spanish Republican exile as its starting point, the volume presents extended comparative case studies in order to broaden and advance current conceptions of, and debates surrounding, exile in musicology and Spanish studies. In doing so, it significantly furthers academic research on individual composers including Salvador Bacarisse, Julian Bautista, Roberto Gerhard, Rodolfo Halffter, Julian Orbon and Adolfo Salazar. Music Criticism and Music Critics in Early Francoist Spain is the first English-language study of Spanish music criticism in the 1940s. 

I regularly disseminate my research through collaborations with Spanish performers and arts institutions, and have written for History today and The Public Domain Review, among others. I have an ongoing interest in the Digital Humanities (mainly visualization and GIS), and maintain the projects Spanish Music in Exile and Inventing the recording. I have gained two Diploma de Experto Universitario (equivalent to a PGDip) through the Spanish Open University - one in Digital Humanities and one in Programming for Digital Humanities.

I have long had a latent interest in medieval music, which led me to undertake study of the portative organ and of medieval singing from 2016 onwards. Developing research interests in this field include the development of instrumental music in 13th- and 14th-century Italy and France, and historical performance practices on the portative organ and voice.

Supervision

I currently supervise or co-supervise five research students. I welcome enquiries for students interested in working on topics that fall within my research expertise. This could be, most obviously, topics related to the cultural and political history of Spanish classical music from the late 19th century to the end of the Franco regime, but I'd also be keen to hear about projects focusing on other geographical areas/eras/types of music which could conceivably benefit from my expertise about exile and displacement, the history of reception, the history of recording technologies or the history of music criticism (among others).

  • Bols, Ingrid
    Programming choices and national culture. The case of French and British symphony orchestras.
  • Findlay, Jack
    John Field and the influence Russian music culture had on his compositions.
  • Hong, Ju-Lee
    Musical diplomacy: Isang Yun’s music in the context of the Cold War
  • STYLIANIDES, TIMOTHEOS
    The guitar performance practice during the second and third decades of twentieth century in Spain, focusing at the musical output of Generacion del '27

Teaching

In the second semester of the academic year 2018/19, I will be convening the following modules:

  • Listening through Analysis (Level 1, undergraduate)
  • Research Skills and Digital Musicology (Masters level, MMus)
