On instrumental interpretation

Bernard Sève
Research on musical interpretation is a vast field encompassing such a wide array of questions that it one runs the risk of getting lost. This confusion is almost inevitable, as the very concept around which these studies are centred is itself obscure: what does one mean by interpretation? In music, who is the interpreter and who the one being interpreted? Philosopher Bernard Sève, who dedicated several books on these fundamental questions, offers an explanation.
