A book-length study of patronage and modernist music in France, from 1918 to 1939.

In my book, I trace the substantial shifts in patronage that transformed the sounds and meanings of French modernist music between the world wars. These shifts motivate my redefinition of patronage: far from the court- and church-centered employment that produced most art music before 1800, I explore the “new patronage” of the twentieth century, exemplified by disparate funding practices stretching from the philanthropic to the entrepreneurial. I show how shifts in patronage affected not only music but the composers, critics, theater owners, audiences, and institutions that shaped how it was made and understood, leaving behind legacies that continue to shape international art music composition and music philanthropy through the present day.
