The papers here presented were delivered at the widely acclaimed Symposium on Music Criticism held by the Department of Music of Harvard University in May, 1947. They reassess and reëxamine the nature and function of criticism and its relation to the creative mind, both of the composer and the performer as well as of the critic himself.
