Barbara Titus is associate professor of Musicology at the University of Amsterdam.
Barbara Titus' Recognizing Music as an Art Form is the first study in any language to present Vischer's musical thought in its historical context and explains its importance in nineteenth-century conceptions of the art. Her book is an impressive piece of work, carefully documented and clearly presented. Mark Evan Bonds, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This is a welcome contribution to the field of the history of music aesthetics.
