Summary
In this Oxford Very Short Introduction, Holoman (music, University of California, Davis) reviews and explains the history, composition and functioning of modern (Western) orchestras. He considers their history since they emerged in 17th-century Europe; the working conditions and vocational aims of, as well as relations between, musicians and other participants; different kinds of venues where orchestras perform and the architecture they inspire; the role money, patronage, and endowments played in the rise of concert-going culture; conductors, why they matter, and why maestros are a myth; musicology and popular music criticism; the impact recording technology had on orchestras; and the relationship between orchestras and politics, especially concerning peace advocacy. A short conclusion repudiates the notion that orchestras are dead. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
