In both her writing and her teaching, Professor Kreuzer approaches music from a wide range of interdisciplinary perspectives, such as social, cultural, and political history as well as theories of multimedia. Her book Verdi and the Germans: From Unification to the Third Reich (winner of the 2011 Lewis Lockwood Award and the Gaddis Smith International Book Prize) examines the changing impact of the popular Italian composer on German musical self-perception and national identity. Her publications have appeared in various journals, encyclopedias, and edited volumes, and have received several prizes from the American Musicological Society as well as the Royal Musical Association and Yale’s Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Publication. We talk with Professor Kreuzer about her new book, Verdi and the Germans.
