Riassunto: Becoming an Ethnomusicologist centers on the life and education of the author, Bruno Nettl, a well-known ethnomusicologist. Focusing on eleven individuals who influenced him significantly, it follows their roles through his career from his childhood in Czechoslovakia and his family's forced departure in 1939 to his education in the United States and career as a scholar. These essays contribute to an understanding of the life of Jewish and German minorities in Bohemia through the first half of the 20th century, of pre-World War II Prague, of the experience of intellectual and academic refugees in the United States during and after World War II, and of the early development of ethnomusicology as a field of study.
This work opens with the author's exploration of the careers of his father, the well-known music historian Paul Nettl, and his mother, Gertrud Nettl, a pianist and piano teacher. From his boyhood in Prague, Nettl provides insights into his own evolution as a musicologist.He discusses the rise of the discipline of ethnomusicology, from the studies of Native American music by his mentor George Herzog to the work of linguist C. F. Voegelin and folklorist Stith Thompson.He also looks back on the contribution and input of his principal consultants in his fieldwork on Native American, Iranian, and Indian music.
These essays contribute significantly to the history of musicology, containing the longest--to date--treatments of the contributions of the distinguished scholars Paul Nettl and George Herzog. This work will interest students and scholars of immigration history, Native American culture, and the history of ethnomusicology itself.
Bruno Nettl was born in Prague in 1930, immigrated to the United States with his parents in 1939, grew up in Princeton, NJ, and received most of his highe education at Indiana University. An ethnomusicologist, he carried out reserach with Native Americna peoples, in Iran, and in India. He is the author of several books, the best known being The Study of Ethnomusicology: 31 Issues and Concepts (2005), and Nettl's Elephant: On The History of Ethnomusicology (2010). He has spent most of his career teaching at the University of Illinois, where he is now professor emeritus of music and anthropology.
