Example text

How these sounds are actually produced is by the by. Swimming against a strong intellectual current, I wish to defend a version of this sonicist claim. ⁵ The instrumentalist insists that a synthesized performance of the Hammerklavier —even if acoustically indistinguishable from a performance she acknowledges to be properly formed—would nonetheless be a defective presentation of the piece. And her saying this amounts to a claim that the sonicist’s description of the properties that constitute is incomplete.

Aesthetic and expressive properties, on the other hand, certainly are genuinely possessed by works of music; but in this case, my complaint against Levinson is that his examples do not demonstrate that a work’s having such a property is genuinely contingent upon instrumental (as opposed to merely timbral) properties being normative within it. Let us start by considering artistic properties and, in particular, by returning to Levinson’s own example. Paganini’s Caprice Op. 1, No. 17, he says, deserves the attribution ‘virtuosic’, and, hence, a performance—if it is do justice to the piece’s virtuosic quality—must make use of the violin rather than, say, an acoustically indistinguishable instrument that, perhaps, demanded less of a performer.

Davies argues that such a performance would be a less adequate performance of the piece than a sonically indistinguishable performance making use of a piano; and he takes this to be demonstrated by the fact that we would regard the producer of the synthesized sounds as having cheated in some way. As a matter of fact, it seems to me that we can distinguish two kinds of case here, neither of which have the implications that Davies believes them to have. In the first kind of case, the synthesized performance is produced with the aim of deceiving the audience into thinking that a piano has been used.
