Mode of Notation and Performance

(p.5) TWO Mode of Notation and Performance
The Art of Performance

Heinrich Schenker

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that a composer's mode of notation indicates the desired effect, and that the performer must grasp the intention behind it. Examples demonstrate that interpreting indications literally can actually prevent the desired effect. The performer has the challenge of finding dissembling means which enable him to realize the composer's intentions. The importance of using an authentic text based on manuscripts and first editions is stressed.
