In this sense, then, his agenda is considerably different from Taruskin’s, who would not want anything less than passive contemplation in the Germanic tradition. Kivy’s philosophical facility does have much to teach us, particularly when we might hold a view precisely because we believe it to be logically necessary. His examination of the issue of intention is particularly pertinent in this regard and is one of the most thorough to date (this will be discussed in detail in chapter , below).

Is knowing what you mean and whence comes that knowledge. And more than that, even, authenticity is knowing what you are, and acting in accordance with that knowledge’ (p. ). In fleshing out this concept, Taruskin tends to draw on two theories in modern thought: the history of reception as a major carrier of meaning and tradition as an alternative to authority. According to reception theory ‘[c]hange of context adds as much meaning as it may take away’ (p. ); the meaning, for us, of Don Giovanni has been ‘mediated by all that has been thought and said about it since opening night, and is therefore incomparably richer than it was in ’.

Taruskin, it should be remembered, linked objectivist performance to the high modernism of the Stravinsky and Boulez generations.
