Abstract / Summary

The focus of this study is to examine the relationship between the concert hall and the music it hosted as it weathered radical changes in context through the second half of the twentieth century. The development of any institution evolves to some degree to reflect the social order that created it and as the political economy that brought the concert hall into being changed, the concert hall had to contend simultaneously with new musical practices requiring changing acoustical needs as well as the rise of sound recording technologies which threatened its pre-eminent status as the primary location for listening to music.
