Editorial Reviews

Review

Wagner enthusiasts will certainly find much of interest in The Quest for Voice. British Journal of Aesthetics

From the Inside Flap

"This is the work of a distinguished philosopher and a well-trained musician with a sophisticated sense of history. If the musical and the musicological world were inhabited by Goehrs, it would be a far, far better place. The message of this book deserves the widest possible dissemination."—Richard Taruskin, author of Stravinsky and the Russian Traditions
