Directions for Score-Reading

Excerpt

The score which was at one time the privilege of the professional musician only, has now become the universal property of all lovers of music and of those interested in that art. But although the masterpieces of our concert literature have become more popular in this way, yet the reading of scores implies theoretical and practical knowledge which the lover of music seldom attains unless he be a member of the profession.

For such amateurs the following manual has been written, not merely explaining the mysteries of score-reading but the peculiarities of the instruments as well. The student will find in this book all kinds of practical and useful hints and a summary of difficult questions connected with score-reading--which may prove useful even to those whose musical knowledge is more advanced.

Vienna, November 1923
