Abstract:

"This book aims to make the case that the activities of transcribing, varying, and realizing music are all forms of interpretation - and, indeed, that performative interpretation overall can be seen as a paradigm of what interpretation is. Thom devotes a chapter to each of these three activities and, to make his philosophical points musically concrete, provides a wealth of illustrations ranging from classical music to jazz and involving performers as diverse as Toscanini and Billie Holiday."--Jacket.
