From the Publisher"Towards a Theory of Musical Reproduction addresses thedialectical relation between the musical score (inscription) andits realized sound (performance), the two elements meeting in anact of interpretation, so as to produce what Adorno several timescalls the x-ray image of the work, the subcutaneous depth that liesbeyond surface manifestation. Adorno's concern is how music means,better how it is made meaningful. The book is a fragment, a set ofextensive notes; what survives - more than 200 print pages - isnonetheless very considerable. Adorno's comments and commentaries,invariably aphoristic, are filled with insight and, into thebargain, are richly provocative and commonly provoking."
