"Overall this volume eschews theorizing, and several of the authors rely heavily on empirical studies to confirm what only anecdotal evidence has previously supported.... accessible for performers and teachers at all levels...." Choice
This book unravels the complexities of playing music and reveals aspects of learning, playing and responding to music relevant to performances of all levels. A survey of performance through the ages leads to a presentation of basic historical, analytical and psychological concepts. Four chapters follow on teaching, development, practice and memorization. The next section considers the "translation" from score to sound, physical projection, ensemble playing and performance anxiety. The final section addresses the act of listening, the legacy of recordings, music criticism and "performers on performance".
