Acoustics and the Performance of Music (Modern Acoustics and Signal Processing) (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 25 nov 2010
Descripción del producto
From the reviews of the fifth edition:
“The present book is a translation of the fifth German edition published in 2004. The translator, Uwe Hansen, deserves praise for the quality of his writing in the English language. … Given the material in this text, orchestral musicians and conductors can … appreciate how to use any given acoustical space most advantageously and acousticians and architects can optimize the spaces in which musical groups perform. … The book will certainly benefit all those involved with musical performance.” (Leo Beranek, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 14 (2), 2009)
“The abundance of easy to understand graphic illustrations help the reader go through the relatively complex subjects. The writing is easy to read … . The quality and quantity of illustrations (some of them color plates) are exceptional. … A well written subject index helps find subjects of interest to the reader. There is also a composer-composition index at the end of the book. In summary, this is a highly recommended valuable book for professionals as well as for students interested in musical performance.” (Alberto Behar, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 58 (5), September-October, 2010)
Reseña del editor
This classic reference on musical acoustics and performance practice begins with a brief introduction to the fundamentals of acoustics and the generation of musical sounds. It then discusses the particulars of the sounds made by all the standard instruments in a modern orchestra as well as the human voice, the way in which the sounds made by these instruments are dispersed and how the room into which they are projected affects the sounds.Ver Descripción del producto

However, Springer, the publisher of this book, did such a terribly poor job in terms of print quality that I am motivated to write a review to warn others to not buy this edition by this publisher. Several graphic illustrations in this book are unreadable and horrible. In addition, the quality of the paper is so bad that it is impossible to use a highlighter on the pages without marking through to the next page. I bought this book expecting that it would match the quality of the previous edition (ISBN 3920112563). Instead, this is the most disappointing quality of any book that I have ever purchased in all my years, since 2005, as an Amazon customer. For a book that cost over $65, this is so disappointing.
I advise anybody interested in the excellent graphic data offered by the author of this book to purchase the previous edition, such as ISBN 3920112563 and try to get one from a publisher who can pay more attention to quality control. While I congratulate the author for the revisions and addition of content on this edition, I can not recommend this edition.
