Conservatory Faculty Alison DeSimone's New Book

Alison DeSimone, Assistant Professor of Musicology has just published her new book The Power of Pastiche: Musical Miscellany and Cultural Identity in Early Eighteenth-Century England. Publisher Clemson University Press notes, "The book explores the phenomenon of musical miscellany in early eighteenth-century England both in performance culture and as an aesthetic. Musical miscellany, in its many forms, juxtaposed foreign and homegrown musical practices and styles in order to stimulate discourse surrounding English musical culture during a time of cosmopolitan transformation as the eighteenth century unfolded."

Congratulations Dr. DeSimone!
