Example text

Reception histories are concerned less with individual responses, which are properly a subject for music psychology, than with collective responses based on determinate groups of listeners, whether these are defined by nationality, social class, cultural milieu, or profession. A term used to describe a list of composers or works assigned value and greatness by consensus. It tends to foreground the ahistorical, and essentially disinterested, qualities of musical repertories, as against their more temporal, functional and contingent qualities.

Analysis and the performer While analysis does not necessarily bring us close to what a composer did, it is often understood as being in the service of the performer.

His approach was pragmatic, engaging Chapter 2: Music theory and analysis with the aspects of a piece that could be identified readily either by reading the score, while playing, or while listening to a recording.

This sort of analysis is often comparative: a number of recordings of the same piece can be compared in terms of their use of factors such as time, pitch variation, dynamics, and articulation, for example. And this leads us towards the relationship between analysis and the listener.

On the other hand, you might think that unless it tells us things we cannot hear, then it is entirely redundant.
