Description: Tempo is the premier English-language journal devoted to 20th-century and contemporary concert music. Literate and scholarly articles, often illustrated with music examples, explore many aspects of the work of composers throughout the world. Written in an accessible style, approaches range from the narrative to the strictly analytical. Tempo frequently ventures outside the acknowledged canon to reflect the diversity of the modern music scene. Issues feature interviews with leading composers, a tabulated news section, and lively and wide-ranging reviews of recent recordings, books and first performances around the world. Selected issues also contain specially-commissioned music supplements.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
