Interpreting Music

Interpreting Music

Lawrence Kramer


Interpreting Music is a finished essay on figuring out musical which means and appearing track meaningfully—“interpreting song” in either senses of the time period. Synthesizing and advancing 20 years of hugely influential paintings, Lawrence Kramer essentially rethinks the innovations of labor, ranking, functionality, performativity, interpretation, and meaning—even the very suggestion of music—while breaking down traditional knowledge and acquired rules. Kramer argues that track, faraway from being closed to interpretation, is preferably open to it, and that musical interpretation is the paradigm of interpretation as a rule. The e-book illustrates the numerous dimensions of examining tune via a chain of case stories drawn from the classical repertoire, yet its equipment and rules hold over to different repertoires simply as they create past track by means of operating through song to wider philosophical and cultural questions.
