In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Susan McClary, Professor of Musicology at the University of California, Los Angeles, discusses the various ways that musicians approach interpreting music, and the outcomes that each approach can yield. She uses her own study of 17th-century French harpsichord music, and the ways in which it doesnt make sense to 21st-century ears as an example of the challenges and opportunities that await musicians inside a piece of music.
