Inhaltsangabe: What does it mean to understand music? What, if anything, does music mean? Composers, performers, listeners, and academics may answer these questions differently, but what sense of music do they share? When music seems unfamiliar or unlike anything we have heard before, we may say that we don't like it. How is taking pleasure from music related to understanding it? This book explores these and other issues as they arise in various musical contexts.

From Kirkus Reviews: Short, extremely perceptive discussions about ``meaning'' and ``understanding'' in serious music that will captivate new listeners as well as the musically tuned-in. Readers who can set aside their envy of Rosen's talents--he is a renowned pianist on stage and recordings, a persuasive advocate of new music, and a world-class prose stylist (The Classical Style won a National Book Award in 1972)--will devour these three lectures that Rosen gave in Rome last year under the aegis of the New York Review of Books. For wit, intelligence, and original thought about the problems of how to speak (or write) cogently about classical masterpieces as well as the challenging musical art of today, Rosen has few rivals. He starts with a large enough question: ``What does it mean to understand music?'' Expanding his first ``modest'' definition that ``understanding music simply means not being irritated or puzzled by it,'' he goes on to suggest that the historical evolution of musical criticism began with judgment (i.e., deciding how a musical piece measures up to accepted classical models or, more generally, to listeners' unconscious expectations) and in the last 200 years was transformed into an imaginative exercise in comprehension. Given the radical leaps in musical language taken by 20th-century composers, Rosen's investigation of changing critical criteria is especially pertinent for the contemporary listener who, sorely tried, is still trying to understand modern music. Rosen does rely on some musical examples printed in the text, but an inability to read musical notation will not measurably diminish the reader's pleasure in following his train of thought. Not every reader will agree with all of Rosen's notions, particularly his Mahler-esque maxim that ``the name generally given to widely accepted error is tradition.'' Still, few music lovers will come away unsatisfied. A work of genuine intellectual nourishment, brief but brilliant. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Buchbeschreibung Kahn & Averill. Paperback. Buchzustand: new. BRAND NEW, The Frontiers of Meaning: Three Informal Lectures on Music (2nd Revised edition), Charles Rosen, What does it mean to understand music? What, if anything, does music mean? Composers, performers, listeners, and academics may answer these questions differently, but what sense of music do they share? When music seems unfamiliar or unlike anything we have heard before, we may say that we don't "like" it. How is taking pleasure from music related to understanding it? This book explores these and other issues as they arise in various musical contexts. Performers' interpretations may be filled with errors, after all, that then become part of a tradition; a composer's work may be variously assessed by his or her contemporaries - an account of how Beethoven's reputation was established so early is included - and how musical analysis can mislead as well as enhance understanding of a composition. Originally the content of three lectures given in Rome in 1993 - "The Frontiers of Nonsense", "How To Become Immortal" and "Explaining the Obvious" - this work offers a study of music, as text, as performance, and as listening experience.
