Adeline Mueller (Mount Holyoke College), "Cadences of the Childlike: Familial Intimacy in Mozarts Sonatas for Four Hands and Double and Triple Concertos"
Adeline Mueller is Assistant Professor of Music at Mount Holyoke College. She specializes in Mozart and eighteenth-century opera, ballet, and Lieder, with additional research interests in music and childhood, silent film music, and eighteenth-century musical ethnography. She has published articles on Mozart in Eighteenth-Century Music (2013) and Opera Quarterly (2013), and guest edited an issue of Opera Quarterly (2012) on Mozarts Singspiel The Magic Flute. She also contributed chapters to the edited volumes Wagner and Cinema (Indiana, 2010) and The Works of Monsieur Noverre Translated from the French: Noverre, His Circle, and the English Lettres sur la danse (Pendragon, 2015). Her forthcoming book, Mozart and the Mediation of Childhood, examines Mozarts role in the social and cultural construction of childhood during the Austrian Enlightenment, using evidence from his early career, his compositions for the young, early biographies, and posthumous (including spurious) music prints. In her research and in courses such as Shakespeare and Music, Music and Childhood, and Race in the American Musical, she focuses on the ways music circulates among performers, consumers, and audiences, and on musical practices as sites of social reflection and experimentation.
