Perspectives on Musical Revision

The processes and products of musical revision offer fertile ground for scholarship. They may be covert or overt depending on the parties involved and their reasons. They can offer insights into musical creative processes, challenge notions of musical fixity and open debates around ideology and power. In this set of performances and papers staff from the University of Surrey, alongside guest artists, offer compositional and musicological responses to these topics and others, focusing on contemporary music, Austro-German repertoire, life writing, film and TV.
