My research and teaching focus on the history and culture of the European concert music tradition, especially in performance. My two monographs and over 50 other publications analyse the changes in interpretations of Western Classical music as evidenced on commercial sound recordings and historical documents. I study both the technical and expressive dimensions of interpretations and focus primarily on string, vocal and keyboard players and repertoires. I'm also interested in audience response, how and why taste and aesthetic preferences change, and the role of culture and education in all this. My approach is empirical, utilising quantitative, experimental and qualitative methods of investigation, including historical and archival approaches.
