Explores the roles that translation plays in a musical context, questioningthe transference of sense between music and text.

'This volume issues a powerful challenge to everyone who uses the word"translation" in relation to music. The sheer diversity of its essaysdemonstrates, as no previous book has, the extraordinary intellectual andartistic fertility of bringing together the notions of music and translation -and the dangers of thinking we know what we're talking about.' - PeterDayan, The University of Edinburgh, UK.
