Philip Rupprecht specializes in music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His recent writings engage concepts of narrative in opera, the circulation of stereotypes in the formation of national traditions in music, and agency effects in instrumental music. He is the author of "British Musical Modernism: the Manchester Group and their Contemporaries" (Cambridge, 2015) and "Britten's Musical Language" (Cambridge, 2002). He co-edited "Tonality 1900-1950" (2012); and edited "Rethinking Britten" (2013).
