The Musical Work: Reality or Invention?
Oxford University Press, May 1, 2000 - Music - 268 pages
Like literature and art, music has 'works'. But not every piece of music is called a work, and not every musical performance is made up of works. The complexities of this situation are explored in these essays, which examine a broad swathe of western music. From plainsong to the symphony, from Duke Ellington to the Beatles, this is at root an investigation into how our minds parcel up the music that we create and hear.
