Sarah Fuchs Sampson
Assistant Professor of Music History and Cultures
My research focuses on the intersections between musical culture, performance, and technological mediation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In my current book project, I examine how the camera, telephone, and phonograph affected the world of French opera between 1870 and 1914. My other projects include a history of piano performance in the age of the player piano, as well as a study of how print culture shaped the London reception of one of the last great castratos, Giovanni Battista Velluti.
