"Thomas Forrest Kelly's examination of the historical circumstances surrounding the first performances of five acknowledged masterpieces shows that the great composers of the past must have experienced similar feelings of trepidation on these occasions, and often with even greater justification. Kelly's ingenious method of examining famous premieres from every possible standpoint reveals a cross section of current musicological concerns. The most important of these is surely the question of what long familiar music sounded like when it was first played"Kelly, Thomas Forrest is the author of 'First Nights Five Musical Premieres', published 2001 under ISBN 9780300091052 and ISBN 0300091052.
