`Demonstrates once again the qualities of perhaps the most consistently stimulating scholar of 17th and 18th-century performance practice writing today. Sure to become a standard resource in its field.' Jane Stevens, DYALEUNIVERSITY
The eighteen witty and provocative essays in this collection spanperformance issues in music from Vivaldi and Bach to Mozart and Haydn.Two survey the early music movement and the creed of authenticity,two ornamentation in the music of Haydn,and one performance problemsin music of Mozart. Other essays argue for contextual examinationof binary and ternary rhythmic conflicts, refute the attempt to universalise the application of the French principle of notes inégales, question the historical `justification' for nonvibrato singing and playing of early music, and challenge the practice of literal interpretation of ornament tables.
FREDERICK NEUMANN has since 1955 been affiliated with the University of Richmond (Virginia) as Professor Emeritus of music.
