Summary Arriving in the United States at age twenty-seven, Hungarian-born Paul Henry Lang (1901-1991) went on to exert a powerful influence on musical life and scholarship in his adopted country for more than six decades. As professor of musicology at Columbia University, editor of the Musical Quarterly, a founder of the American Musicological Society, and chief music critic of the New York Herald Tribune, Lang became one of America's foremost musical scholars and commentators. This anthology of his previously uncollected writings includes essays written throughout his career on a full array of music subjects, as well as unpublished chapters of the book on performance practice that he was writing at the time of his death.
