"Here the art of the performer is studied in all its aspects,spiritual, technical, historical: [from] Frescobaldi's organ playing [to] the thoeretical commentaries of Wagner" The author concludes with his views on performance on recorded media, radio and television. Chapters include From Renaissance to Baroque, Rococo and Enlightenment, Phrasing and Dynamics, Classical Romanticism, Between Two Epochs, New Gateways of Interpretation. "Whilst copyrighted in 1942, this small book addresses the problems facing performers of Western Art music. Interpretation and Performance Practices is the darling of academia today, and the "experts" in this field demand adherence to their orthodxy. To them, Dorian's effort is viewed as "quaint". But to mere mortals, this book is still an indispensable tool for finding one's way through the wilderness of stylistic practices in art music" ( reader review)."
