Jeffrey Kallberg is a specialist in music of the 19th and 20th centuries, editorial theory, critical theory, and gender studies. Kallberg has published widely on the music and cultural contexts of Chopin, most notably in his book, Chopin at the Boundaries: Sex, History, and Musical Genre. His critical edition of Luisa Miller, for The Works of Giuseppe Verdi has been performed throughout the world at such venues as the Cincinnati May Festival, the Teatro alla Scala, the Bayerische Staatsoper, and Orchard Hall in Tokyo.  His current projects include books on Chopin’s nocturnes and on Chopin’s things, and an investigation into the links between ideas of landscape and modernism, especially in Scandinavian music from the first half of the twentieth century.
