More about Campbell Shiflett

M.A., Musicology -- Princeton University, 2018

B.A., Music and Linguistics -- University of Virginia, 2015

Campbell Shiflett studies 20th-century repertoires from interdisciplinary perspectives, questioning how musical signification is implicated in identity-formation. With a particular focus on composers of the French modernist tradition, he considers how genre, allusion, and canon are involved in the construction of subjectivity.

He is also interested in American post-minimalism and its own relationship to genre and has recently presented papers on mourning in the music of Nico Muhly and the appropriation of works by John Adams in contemporary film melodrama.

Campbell is an avid pianist and performs continuo locally with Early Music Princeton. He also maintains a piano studio through the University.
