ISBN 0521235286. The author argues that the reasons for examining early 20th-Century performance are compelling; it is the earliest period from which the primary source material has survived - we have the performances themselves and do not have to rely on documents; furthermore, the recordings have preserved the general performance practice of the period in great detail including habits which are scarcely mentioned in written documents; early 20th-Century recordings have a particular relevance to the study of performance practice in the 19th-Century; recordings also show how performance has gradually changed from the early 20th-Century to our own time, demonstrating how practices of the 20th-Century have evolved.
