Most widely held works by David Charlton
The Cambridge companion to grand opera( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this companion, a team of scholars and writers on opera examine those important Romantic operas that embraced the Shakespearean sweep of tragedy, history, love in time of conflict, and the struggle for national self-determination. Rival nations, rival religions, and violent resolutions are common elements, with various social or political groups represented in the form of operatic choruses. The book traces the origins and development of a style created during an increasingly technical age, which exploited the world-renowned skills of Parisian stage-designers, artists, and dancers as well as singers. It analyses in detail the grand operas by Rossini, Auber, Meyerbeer and Halevy, and discusses grand opera in Russia, Germany, the Czech lands, Italy, Britain, and the Americas

Opera in the age of Rousseau : music, confrontation, realism by David Charlton( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Historians of French politics, art, philosophy and literature have long known the tensions and fascinations of Louis XV's reign, the 1750s in particular. David Charlton's study comprehensively re-examines this period, from Rameau to Gluck, and elucidates the long-term issues surrounding opera. Taking Rousseau's Le Devin du village as one narrative centrepiece, Charlton investigates this opera's origins and influences in the 1740s and goes on to use past and present research to create a new structural model that explains the elements of reform in Gluck's tragédies for Paris. Charlton's book opens many new perspectives on the musical practices and politics of the period, including the Querelle des Bouffons. It gives the first details account of intermezzi and opere buffa performed by Eustachio Bambini's troupe at the Paris Opéra from August 1752 to March 1754, and discusses Rameau's comedies Platée and Les Paladins, and their origins."--From back cover
