- Author BiographyMarkus Mantere graduated with a PhD in Music from Brown University, USA. His dissertation scrutinized the music philosophy of the late Canadian pianist Glenn Gould, as well as the impact that Gould's exceptional musicianship has had on later generations of musicians in Canada and the Western musical world. More recently, Mantere's research on the scholarly criticism of music has focused on the intellectual and social history of musicology in Finland. He has also worked as the editor of Musiikki, the only refereed musicological journal in Finland, since 2007. Vesa Kurkela is Professor of Music History at the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki, Finland. He has written extensively on various topics of music history in Finland and elsewhere: popular music, music publishing, nationalism and transnationalism, folk music and ideology, concert institution and orchestral repertoires, radio music, and recording industry.
