Research interests

Please note that I will be on research leave from January to December 2018. This means I am no longer holding any administrative posts (PG advisor, international convenor, etc.) - please direct your query to the relevant person.

 

Research Interests

I specialize in the political and cultural history of Spanish music from the late 19th century to the present. Themes that have interested me over the years include: exile; memory; music criticism and journalism; music and war; recording technologies; art song and vocality; history of reception; history of Spanish musicology; the Spanish avant-garde.

Research Projects

I am currently PI 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 have recently 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 have an ongoing interest in the Digital Humanities (mainly visualization and GIS), and maintain the projects Spanish Music in Exile and Inventing the recording.

 

Biography

I joined the University of Glasgow in September 2012 as Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Fellow in Music as a Cultural Practice, having held research and teaching posts at the Royal Academy of Music and The Open University. I became a Lecturer in 2015. I obtained undergraduate degrees in Classics and in Musicology at the Universities of Santiago de Compostela and La Rioja, and worked in the media and arts management industries in Spain and Germany before coming to the UK in 2006. My PhD, completed at Royal Holloway College – University of London in 2010, explored music criticism and journalism in Spain under the first years of the Franco regime (1939-1951), including the writings of prominent composers and performers (Joaquín Rodrigo, Joaquín Turina, Regino Sainz de la Maza) who doubled up as music critics.My publications have appeared in both Music and Hispanic Studies journals, exploring topics in the cultural and political history of Spanish music such as: the musical exchanges between Spain and the Axis countries during the Second World War; Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto Heroico; folklore and gender in early Francoism; or the appropriation of Falla under the Franco regime.

My archival work in Spain has been supported by a number of funding bodies (Music & Letters Trust, Lucille Graham Trust, Carnegie Trust), and in summer 2013 I was a short-term Everett Helm research fellow at Indiana University’s Lilly Library. In September 2015 I organized the Ninth International Conference on Music since 1900.
