ESCRIBIR SOBRE MÚSICA (Writing about Music)
First edition: 2016. Second enlarged edition: 2018.
Tchaikovsky, Chaikovski, Tschaikowsky, or…Chaicovsqui? Why is it wrong in Spanish to write Sonata Op. 111 No. 32? Bebop, be bop, or be-bop? How does one approach research in music? What should be quoted, when should it be quoted, and why quote something anyway? How do you bring Spanish-language writing on music into line with international rules for quotes? How do you mention Facebook posts or YouTube videos?
This unprecedented style manual is the product of a long process of analysis and comparison with texts published in other languages. It is written both with students in mind and for both music professionals and musicologists, offering a coherent framework for tackling the writing of texts on musical subjects, and it does so from the starting point of the heterogenous reality of Spanish-speaking countries.
