James William Sobaskie teaches at Mississippi State University in America and serves as Book Reviews Editor of Nineteenth-Century Music Review, which is based in the United Kingdom.

His scholarly publications include analytical studies of music by Fryderyk Chopin and Franz Schubert, but his primary focus is on the music of Gabriel Fauré. Dr. Sobaskie is a member of the comité scientifique for Œuvres complétes de Gabriel Fauré, the first collected-works edition devoted to the composer, which will be published by Bärenreiter in twenty-nine volumes with the support of the French government's cultural agency Musica Gallica. His first contribution to that monument, a critical edition of Fauré's last two works, the Trio pour piano, violon et violoncelle and the Quatuor à cordes, will be issued next month.

Essays on Fauré's La bonne chanson and on Fauré's Barcarolles will appear soon in anthologies released in France, and currently he is completing a book for Ashgate called The Music of Gabriel Fauré: style, structure and the art of allusion.
