Philip Rupprecht specializes in music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His recent writings engage concepts of narrative in operatic drama, the trope of stereotype in the formation of national traditions in music, and agency effects in instrumental music. Currently, he is completing a study of British modernist composers of the 1960s.
