Additional Information

Written by a leading authority and artist of the historical transverse flute, The Notation Is Not the Music offers invaluable insight into the issues of historically informed performance and the parameters—and limitations—of notation-dependent performance. As Barthold Kuijken illustrates, performers of historical music should consider what is written on the page as a mere steppingstone for performance. Only by continual examination and reexamination of the sources to discover original intent can an early music practitioner come close to authentic performance.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

For early music players especially: a lifetime of carefully considered, gracefully presented information. Kuijken, a flutist, plays exquisitely. Here we meet him as a graceful and engaging teacher, who urges us to play with lively feeling and expression, based on sympathetic, grounded understanding of the style and values of Baroque composers and performers. He points his readers to helpful sources, some first-hand accounts directly from the period, some from research just coming into print, that might easily be overlooked. I'm grateful to have read this brief but very helpful book.
I was well aware of this fine musician being a traverso player myself (amateur), but this lends so much depth to the art of playing the instrument that I know I will read it many, many times over. Thank you for writing this book, Barthold!
Such a balanced approach to music making. Whether or not one is interested in performing early music, this offers important insights to performance ing general.
