Abstract

In “A (Dis)Pleasure of Influence: George Rochberg's Caprice Variations for Unaccompanied Violin (1973)” I bring together Harold Bloom's The Anxiety of Influence, several recent and particularly successful adaptations of Bloom to music, and offer a theory of musical (dis)pleasure informed by post-Lacanian psychoanalysis.
