Amanda Hsieh

Dr Amanda Hsieh, Assistant Professor of Musicology at Durham University, won the $2,000 Kurt Weill Article Prize for “Jewish Difference and Recovering ‘Commedia’: Erich W. Korngold’s Die tote Stadt in Post-First World War Austria,” published in Music and Letters in 2022.

The Article Prize panelists selected Hsieh's article from a pool of twenty-nine nominees, celebrating hers as “a sensitively crafted, fresh and fascinating analysis of Die tote Stadt, which deftly explores the collision between Wagnerian style (and ideology) and commedia.” Congratulations, Amanda!
