One thought on “Listening in Paris: A Cultural History”

  1. Listening in Paris is a cultural “history of perception” examining the era 1750-1850 during which time French spectators transformed from a chatty, distracted audience to a quiet and engaged listening public. His analytical framework, which Johnson attributes to idealist philosophy, places the listener at the center of the historical narrative and takes the stance that musical meaning does not reside in the score (or authorial intention) but in the specific moment of reception—a discursive [...]

  2. Excellent and above all entertainingly written account of Parisian opera & concert life in the 18th and 19th centuries.

  3. This is very much not my field, but Johnson makes the history both interesting and a fluid read. I highly recommend

  4. It was a good read. I really liked like how the author tried to explain how the behaviors of audiences changed in Parisian opera houses.
