The Interpretation of Music Summary


The Interpretation of Music: Philosophical Essays by Michael Krausz

This volume is concerned with the philosophical presuppositions of musical interpretation. It addresses such interrelated questions as the nature of musical interpretation in relation to works or music, whether works of music are fully embodied in scores, how strictly all markings of a score should be respected, what pertinence historical research has for musical interpretation, and how decisive the known or reconstructed intentions of a composer should be. The contributors investigate the aesthetic, cultural and historical aspects of musical interpretation, and their relation to interpretation in other human practices. In addition, they investigate such fundamental distinctions as those between musical and non-musical phenomena, and between musical and linguistic meaning.

The Interpretation of Music Reviews


"Accessible musings by some of the most sophisticated American aestheticians of music."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"The philosophy of music aims to intersect our natural reflections on musical experience and practice with the general preoccupations of philosophy, and so to distil universal aspects of music. When this is done well, the philosophy of music shares and extraphilosophical value of good music
criticism: it enhances our sense of the contours of musical experience and pays homage to the intensely particular character of musical works. A number of the papers in Michael Krausz's collection have this virtue."--Times Literary Supplement
