Deconstructive Variations
Book Description:

In this sequel to her previous collection, Developing Variations, Subotnik applies the insights of Kant, Adorno, Bakhtin, and Derrida to major works of Mozart and Chopin. “Rose Rosengard Subotnik’s work has long defined the forefront of musicological methods and set a high standard for ethically engaged scholarship. In Deconstructive Variations, she brings her impressive knowledge of culture and philosophy to bear on a wide array of new topics, ranging from Mozart operas to the films of Spike Lee. And her chapter on deconstruction not only makes the best case I have seen for the application of this method to music, but it also presents one of the most compelling defenses for deconstruction available. A brilliant contribution to music and cultural studies.” --Susan McClary, UCLA
