Book Summary

In the opening chapters, Dr. Beranek presents a fascinating look at the ways in which the acoustics of concert halls affect composers, musicians, and listeners. From interviews with musicians and music critics he places many of the world's renowned halls into categories of acoustical excellence. The main body of the book is devoted to descriptions, seating plans, photographs, and drawings of the world's top 66 concert halls and ten opera houses. The remaining chapters consider how shape, size, balconies, boxes, seats, surface arrangements, and suspended elements influence a hall's acoustics.
