Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Owing to the broad and thoughtful approach taken by the six authors, this book offers far more than is suggested by its title. It considers music from the Middle Ages to the present, touching on some of the most essential questions of performance and appreciation of music from any age: the levels of meaning in music; composers and their intentions; and the freedom and responsibilities of the performer. Provocative, stimulating, and well written, these essays should make intelligent listeners rethink their criteria for choosing and appreciating performers and performances. Timothy J. McGee, Univ. of Toronto
