James Wierzbicki

en

James Wierzbicki is a Senior Lecturer in musicology at the University of Sydney. Before taking up this post, he taught in the United States at the University of Michigan and the University of California-Irvine, and for more than twenty years he was chief classical music critic for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and other large American newspapers. Along with exploring questions of modernity and the postmodern, his research focuses on twentieth-century music in general and film music in particular. His articles have appeared in Beethoven Forum, Music and the Moving Image, Opera Quarterly, Perspectives of New Music, the Journal of the American Musicological Society, and Musical Quarterly; his books include a monograph on the electronic score for the 1956 film Forbidden Planet (Scarecrow Press, 2005), Film Music: A History (Routledge, 2009), and Elliott Carter (University of Illinois Press, 2011). Wierzbicki’s recently completed large project is a study of the full range of American music in The Fifties, regarded through such societal ‘filters’ as post-war technology, the Arms Race, the Red Scare, race relations, and sexual politics.
