Summary Familiarity underpins our engagement with music. In Music and Familiarity, King and Prior bring together 13 essays that highlight theoretical and empirical considerations about familiarity from three perspectives: listening, musicology, and performance. This book explores the ways in which familiarity impacts our behaviour and responses to music; influences our appreciation and perceptions of music; and also how familiarity affects musicians' performance practices
