There are also some promising signs that 2017 will be a good year for Proust and music. In particular, we are looking forward to the publication of:

Joseph Acquisto, Proust, Music, and Meaning: Theories and Practices of Listening in the ‘Recherche’  (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming 2017). See here for more information.

Cécile Leblanc, Proust écrivain de la musique: l’allégresse du compositeur (Brepols, forthcoming 2017). See here.

Finally, there was an excellent conference on Proust and music at the end of October 2016 at the Fondation Singer-Polignac in Paris. If you look here you can see the programme and scroll down for video recordings of all the papers: enjoy!
