Gundula Kreuzer has been awarded the Dent Medal 2019 of the Royal Musical Association, in association with the International Musicological Society. Kreuzer's work combines extensive archival research with imaginative methodological and theoretical ideas to challenge presumptions about historical figures and music about which it had seemed little more could be said. Importantly, at a time of debates within and beyond higher education institutions about the value of studying all kinds of music, Kreuzer explains the significance of the canon, its contingencies and its limits.
