|Title:||Famous Violinists and their Critics: New York City, 1900 to 1930|
|Authors:||Foley, Ann Mary|
|Abstract:||<p>This thesis examines a number of significant violin performances which took place in New York City between the years 1900 and 1930, as seen through the writings of five prominent American reviewers. In so doing, it illustrates, not only the developing trends in violin playing at that time, but also critical reaction to those trends and, as well, exposes the individual characteristics, both musical and literary, of the critics themselves. Short biographical sketches on the violinists and critics have been included. An analysis of early recordings has been added at the end of each chapter as a means of comparing critical statements with examples of actual recorded sound.</p>|
