  • Date04 June 2019

Congratulations to Emily MacGregor who has won the 2019 Jerome Roche Prize of the Royal Musical Association.


Emily MacGregor

The prize is awarded annually 'for a distinguished article by a scholar in the early stages of his or her career', and recognizes Emily's article 'Listening for the Intimsphäre: Recovering Berlin 1933 through Hans Pfitzner’s Symphony in C-sharp Minor', published in The Musical Quarterly 101 (2018).

According to the RMA: 'Her fine-grained analysis of the cultural and ethical dimensions of the 1933 performance of Pfitzner’s Symphony illuminates a little-understood aspect of early Nazi constructions of the social "self" through the lens of genre and aesthetics.'

Emily is currently an EU Marie Curie Research Fellow at Royal Holloway, investigating the experience of Austro-German musical exiles in the United States 1930-45 through the perspectives of technology and modernity.
