While other cities offered few if any operatic productions, New Orleans gained renown for its glorious opera seasons. Resident composers, performers, publishers, teachers, instrument makers, and dealers fed the publics voracious cultural appetite. Tourists came from across the United States to experience the citys thriving musical scene. Until now, no study has offered a thorough history of this exciting and momentous era in American musical performance history. John H. Barons Concert Life in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans impressively fills that gap.Barons exhaustively researched work details all aspects of New Orleanss nineteenth-century musical renditions, including the development of orchestras- the surrounding social, political, and economic conditions- and the individuals who collectively made the city a premier destination for world-class musicians.

Baron includes a wide-ranging chronological discussion of nearly every documented concert that took place in the Crescent City in the 1800s, establishing Concert Life in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans as an indispensable reference volume.
