Professor Paul Thom
"Works of Music and their interpretation in performance"
Are works of music timeless artworks whose proper performance leaves no room for creative performance, are they historical entities that constantly change under interpretation - or is there a third possibility?

Paul Thom is an Honorary Professor of Philosophy in the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry at the University of Sydney. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanites, and a recipient of the Centenary of Federation Medal for service to Australian society and the humanities in the study of philosophy of the arts. His books include For An Audience: a philosophy of the performing arts (Temple University Press 1993) and The Musician as Interpreter (Pennsylvania State University Press 2007). His recent articles include "Opera" and "Authenticity in performance" in The Routledge Companion to Philosophy and Music,  and "The aesthetics of opera", Philosophy Compass (2011).
