520    "A Juilliard-trained musician and professor of history 
       explores the fascinating entanglement of classical music 
       with American foreign relations. Dangerous Melodies 
       vividly evokes a time when classical music stood at the 
       center of American life, occupying a prominent place in 
       the nation's culture and politics. The work of renowned 
       conductors, instrumentalists, and singers-and the 
       activities of orchestras and opera companies-were 
       intertwined with momentous international events: two world
       wars, the rise of fascism, and the Cold War. Jonathan 
       Rosenberg recovers the politics behind classical music, 
       showing how German musicians were dismissed or imprisoned 
       as the country's music was swept from American auditoriums
       during World War I-yet, twenty years later, those same 
       compositions could inspire Americans in the fight against 
       Nazism while Russian music was deployed to strengthen the 
       U.S.-Soviet alliance. During the Cold War, Van Cliburn's 
       triumph in the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow became 
       cause for America to celebrate. In Dangerous Melodies, 
       Rosenberg delves into the singular decades-long 
       relationship of classical music and political ideology in 
       America"--|cProvided by publisher.
