Texte du rabat

Beethoven permeates American culture. His image appears on countlessbusts and coffee mugs; his music is heard in movie scores, TV soundtracks, commercials, and pop songs; he is Schroeder's god in Peanuts and Chuck Berry'sfreaked-out parent in "Roll over Beethoven." In this book, Michael Broylesseeks to understand the composer as he exists in the American imagination andexplores how Beethoven became a cultural icon. Broyles examines Beethoven'sappearance in a variety of contexts: American commercialism, the Afrocentrist andblack power movements, and the modernist critique of Romanticism. He considersportrayals of Beethoven in American film and theater and the uses of his music infilm scores, as well as references to Beethoven and his music in disco, country, rock, and rap. In the end, he shows that to examine Beethoven on American soil is toexamine America itself.
