Santa Claus, Musical Patriotism, And The New York Philharmonic: The Great Critical Kerfuffle Of 1853-54

America’s oldest orchestra had the development and promotion of American music as part of its founding mission.

Musicologist Doug Shadle recounts the ruckus that ensued. – The New York Ti...

First off, let's be clear what we mean by "hear" here. (Here, here!)Sound, as we know it, requires air. What our ears capture is actually oscillating waves of fluctuating air pressure.
