Charles Avison's Essay on musical expression : with related writings by William Hayes and Charles Avison by Charles Avison( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Avison's Essay on Musical Expression, first published in 1752, is a major contribution to the debate on musical aesthetics which developed in the course of the eighteenth century. Considered by Charles Burney as the first essay devoted to 'musical criticism' proper, it established the primary importance of 'expression' and reconsidered the relative importance of harmony and melody. Immediately after its publication it was followed by William Hayes's Remarks (1753), to which Avison himself retorted in his Reply. Taken together these three texts offer a fascinating insight into the debate that raged in the eighteenth century between the promoters of the so-called 'ancient music' (such as Hayes) and the more 'modern' musicians
