The English-language monograph Musical Modernism and German Cinema from 1913 to 1933 has been published in the book series “Film and Television Studies” by Palgrave Macmillan, UK.
Finocchiaro’s study delivers compelling insights into the relationship between Musical Modernism and German silent and early sound cinema. Approaching cinema from the vantage point of its engagement with modernist composers manages to move beyond the boundaries between “high” and “low” art, opening up the wider field of the cultural status of cinema in relation to coexisting art forms at a crucial historical moment.
