Critical Entertainments by Charles Rosen
Book DescriptionAn extraordinary gifted musician and writer, Charles Rosen is a peerless commentator on the history and performance of music. This book brings together many of the essays that have established him as one of the most influential and eloquent voices in the field of music in our time. These essays cover a broad range of musical forms, historical periods, and issues - from Bach through Brahms to Carter and Schoenberg, from contrapuntal keyboard music to opera, from performance practices to music history as a discipline. They revisit Rosen's favourite subjects and pursue some less familiar paths. They court controversy (with strong opinions about performance on historical instruments, the so-called new musicology, and he alleged "death" of classical music) and offer enlightenment on subjects as diverse as music dictionaries and the aesthetics of stage fright. All are unified by Rosen's abiding concerns and incomparable style. This book should be of interest to all music lovers.

Freedom and the Arts, Hardback (May 2012)
Is there a moment in history when a work receives its ideal interpretation? Or is perpetual negotiation required to preserve the past and accommodate the present? The freedom of interpretation, Charles Rosen suggests in these sparkling explorations, exists in a delicate balance with fidelity to the identity of the original work.
Music and Sentiment, Paperback (September 2011)
How does a work of music stir the senses, creating feelings of joy, sadness, elation, or nostalgia? This title details the array of stylistic devices and techniques used to represent or convey sentiment. It traces the use of radically changing intensities in the Romantic works of the nineteenth century.
