This volume issues a powerful challenge to everyone who uses the word 'translation' in relation to music. The sheer diversity of its essays demonstrates, as no previous book has, the extraordinary intellectual and artistic fertility of bringing together the notions of music and translation - and the dangers of thinking we know what we're talking about. --Peter Dayan, Professor of Word and Music Studies, The University of Edinburgh, UK
This is a very rich and wide-ranging collection which combines real interdisciplinarity with a keen awareness of the current relevance of this topic to Translation Studies. The book is likely to give new energy to an already-lively field of research. Its store of fascinating detail and its blend of professional and critical input, from the world of opera in particular, should also interest admirers of opera, art song and other musical-textual forms. --Carol O Sullivan, Senior Lecturer in Italian Language and Translation Theory, University of Portsmouth, UK
