    Book details


This book focuses on the relationship of European music to the social and cultural experiences of the residents of nineteenth-century Rio de Janeiro. It shows European Music as a powerful force in the internal processes of political, cultural, social, and ethnic negotiations during the government of Emperor Pedro II and will make an excellent addition to the library of amateur and professional Latin American Historians, musicologists, and enthusiasts.
