Thanks to everyone who responded to my query about depictions of sex in
music. I've got a solid list of pieces that I am looking at for the Human
Sexuality class I will be speaking at.
However, I have one question that I have not found to the answer to:
Which Shostakovich opera was it that offered a musical description of
lovemaking, The Nose or Lady MacBeth? I've seen both mentioned.
George K. Halsell
