Abstract

This study focuses on Ernest Newman's philosophy of music criticism. Although all of the critic's writings in regard to this topic are examined, particular emphasis is placed on previously undocumented articles from "The World of Music" (Sunday Times, London - 1920-1958). Preliminary chapters provide a biography and a brief history of music criticism. Newman's enunciation of the problems associated with music criticism and his attempts to solve those problems are then examined in detail. Conclusions are drawn in regard to the value of Newman's thoughts about his profession.
