Concert Halls and Opera Houses

Concert Halls and Opera Houses

Musics, Acoustics, and Architecture

Leo Beranek

662 pages, parution le 10/12/2003


This illustrated guide to 100 of the world's most important concert halls and opera houses examines their architecture and engineering and discusses their acoustical quality as judged by conductors and music critics. The descriptions and photographs will serve as a valuable guide for today's peripatetic performers and music lovers. With technical discussions relegated to appendices, the book can be read with pleasure by anyone interested in musical performance. The photographs (specially commissioned for this book) and architectural drawings (all to the same scale) together with modern acoustical data on each of the halls provide a rich and unmatched resource on the design of halls for presenting musical performances. Together with the technical appendices, the data and drawings will serve as an invaluable reference for architects and engineers involved in the design of spaces for the performance of music. Leo Beranek is an internationally recognized authority in acoustics who has consulted on the design of dozens of important auditoriums around the World. He has received the highest honors of the Acoustical Society of America and of the Audio Engineering Society. Some praise for the previous edition: "No one has done more to unlock for musicians the scientific mysteries of acoustics and for acousticians an appreciation of the aesthetic experience of musicians and listeners."- Philip Gossett, Professor of Music, University of Chicago "Directed in large part to musicians and concert goers, it is as easy to read as it is informative . . . the descriptions [of concert halls] are a terrific asset to visiting conductors."- Yuzo Toyama, Conductor "Provides an invaluable resource for the understanding and design of music facilities."- I.M. Pei, Architect
