Authors: Saxena, S. K.
Keywords: Musical criticism
Music--History and criticism
Issue Date: 1987
Publisher: Sangeet Natak Akademi, New Delhi
Abstract: Present paper attract the attention on works of art and distinguishes their individual features brings out their hidden significance, sometimes it classifies them as representative of a particular style or gharana and much more freely passes value judgement on them, calling them good or pioneering or poor and ineffective as art. It influence can be great. It may be able to push a young and deserving but so far neglected artist into prominence or temper our excessive regard for a maestro by drawing attention to some quite unsuspected flaws in his art. But the critic's basic immediate functions are in the main three: description, interpretation and evaluation. How these functions interrelate is easy to see.
