Performing Music in the Age of Recording (Google eBook)
Yale University Press, Apr 1, 2004 - 302 pages
Listeners have enjoyed classical music recordings for more than a century, yet important issues about recorded performances have been little explored. What is the relationship between performance and recording? How are modern audiences affected by the trends set in motion by the recording era? What is the impact of recordings on the lives of musicians? In this wide-ranging book, Robert Philip extends the scope of his earlier pioneering book, "Early Recordings and Musical Style: Changing Tastes in Instrumental Performance 1900-1950." Philip here considers the interaction between music-making and recording throughout the entire twentieth century.
