DENISE VON GLAHN, Assistant Professor of Musicology, Assistant Professor Musicology, came to Florida State in 1998. She specializes in American music, twentieth-century musical modernism, and the composers Charles Ives and Leo Ornstein with a particular interest in the interactions between music and larger social and cultural currents.

Her book The Sounds of Place: Music and the American Cultural Landscape (Northeastern University Press, 2003) looks at fourteen American composers of the high-art tradition and the ways they have been inspired by America's iconographic places. A critical edition of Leo Ornstein's Quintette for Piano and Strings (1927), part of the Music in the United States of America (MUSA) series, is forthcoming from A-R Editions. Her work has appeared in Musical Quarterly, American Music, and numerous collections of essays both in this country and abroad. She is currently writing a biographical/musicological study of pianist-composer Leo Ornstein with co-author Michael Broyles.
