At first, America was convinced of its utter illegitimacy as a purveyor of “art” music. In the 19th century, as musical life developed in the United States, and while large American cities built concert halls to house their newly-formed symphony orchestras, the repertoire and the most popular artists remained overwhelmingly European: thus, the Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (1820-1887) – a friend of Felix Mendelssohn, a collaborator of Giuseppe Verdi, and a key figure of the Bach Renaissance – made a deep impression when she toured the country in 1852-2.

Female creative and technical labour in nineteenth-century print culture
A special issue of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies edited by Jocelyn Hargrave and Megan Peiser Summer 2022
The grotesque and bizarre have accompanied many lyrics and melodies throughout the decades. Whether it is used to fit the Gothic narrative of bands such as Bauhaus and The Cure, or to serve as a device to create buzz surrounding the artist/band, such as the monstrous element of Lady Gaga’s early persona, the shock factor of audiovisual aesthetics has played a pivotal role in the development of contemporary soundscapes.
