The Work of Kathleen Schlesinger and Elsie Hamilton
Kathleen Schlesinger was a musicologist, the author of “The Greek Aulos” (Methuen 1939) now out of print, where she analyses the tuning systems used in Greece and other ancient and indigenous cultures to deduce a system known as the Harmoniai. This method of tuning was used by her friend, the composer Elsie Hamilton in her music. Here we present reprints of some rare articles by Schlesinger and Hamilton.
