Teatros arquitetura Acoustique architecturale. Summary The first question any lover of classical music usually asks an acoustician is, “Which are the best halls in the world? Following the first chapters, which establish a base for understanding the effects of acoustics on composers, performers, and listeners, and guiding the reader to a common vocabulary, the bullz of this conceft, Chapter 3, contains the write-ups, photographs, drawings, and architectural details on existing operq in 31 countries.


Thirty of the halls are completely new. Although the remainder appeared in earlier books by the author, the materials have been updated wherever necessary. The later chapters present the relation of a hall’s acoustics to its age, shape, type of seats, and the materials used for the walls and ceiling.

The sequence of events that led to Boston Symphony Hall’s excellent acoustics, which opened inis covered in detail-although it went through a troubled first few years because the leading local music critic considered the predecessor hall as better. Detailed discussions also appear for balcony, box, stage, and pit designs.

All the known electroacoustical measurements on existing halls are examined and anr with the rank orders of 58 concert halls and 21 opera houses that were obtained from interviews and questionnaires.

Finally, the optimal electro-acoustical results are presented for concert halls and opera houses used for today’s repertoires. Three appendices supplement the chapters: 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.
