Music and Literature
Music & Literature is a charitable organization dedicated to publishing excellent critical literature on neglected authors, composers, and other artists from around the world. Founded to confront the growing need for serious long form criticism on the arts in America and provide a forum for critics and artists, Music & Literature is published twice per year, with each in-depth issue exploring the work of 3-4 featured artists. Each issue is roughly 200 pages in length and contains at least 15 new critical essays and first-time translations of articles; new interviews with the featured artists; when possible, previously unpublished manuscripts, scores, correspondence, and other archived materials obtained through collaboration with cultural institutions and artists’ estates; and, where appropriate, reproductions of seminal critical texts. Following a tradition of ambitious critical publishing that in recent years has fallen out of fashion, Music & Literature is an important venue for the best art criticism out of Europe and the United States. Published in both digital and clothbound print editions, issues of Music & Literature are unique objects designed to meet the immediate needs of modern readers while enduring and becoming permanent resources for future generations of readers, scholars, and artists. Currently, no comparable magazine exists in English.
