Ned Rorem: “Bruce-Michael Gilbert recently quoted me for having once used that naughty word 'gay' to describe Pélleas on the grounds of the text. There was something up between him and Marcéllus, whom he never gets to see again. But it's just another one of these cryptic, dangling themes that's introduced by Materlinck, dropped, and never resumed.”

Is music the patriarchy's most powerful weapon in constructing and controlling sexual roles? If you scratch an opera queen, will you find a lesbian? Queering the Pitch will provoke many to question what it is that makes music pleasurable, and how it is shaped by notions of sexuality and sexual identity. The first collection of gay and lesbian work in music and musicology, this book contains a wealth of diverse approaches which signal an exciting and controversial advance in the field. Musicologists, scholars academics, critics, performers and composers examine the areas of musical education, voice and listening, history and biography, as seen through an interdisciplinary and political eye.
