Los músicos padecen muchas enfermedades y lesiones propias de esta profesión, y muchos de estos problemas se inician en la época de estudiantes. Esto afecta a todos los tipos de música, desde la clásica y el jazz, hasta el rock y la música tradicional. Los daños en el oído son un problema grave en muchos tipos de música, si bien las situaciones más estresantes y los daños físicos más graves se producen durante la ejecución de piezas de música clásica. Las largas horas de ensayo al comienzo de la carrera de los músicos son la principal fuente de problemas, aunque a veces sólo se manifiestan mucho más adelante. Este libro se dirige por igual a estudiantes, músicos profesionales, y profesores de canto e instrumentales, y su finalidad es dar a conocer el cómo y porqué del funcionamiento del cuerpo durante la ejecución de piezas musicales y cómo evitar estas patologías a nivel profesional y lograr, así, niveles óptimos de interpretación. El autor principal del libro, el doctor Jaume Rosset i Llobet, es un médico experto así como un investigador sobre el tema de reconocido prestigio internacional. Es director de un Centro de Fisiología de las Artes en Tarrasa (Cataluña) una de las pocas clínicas del mundo en la que músicos, bailarines y artistas pueden ir a someterse a examen y tratamiento. El libro ofrece ejemplos y referencias sobre la salud de los médicos abarcando un amplio abanico de géneros musicales basado en los estudios actuales, en la práctica médica y los tratamientos clínicos. Además de las explicaciones sobre fisiología, profusamente ilustradas con divertidos dibujos, el libro trata temas como la ergonomía, los factores de riesgo, las posturas, la respiración, y aspectos sobre la dieta y la acomodación de las necesidades profesionales a la vida diaria.

Musicians suffer greatly from industry-related injury and illness, and many of these problems are established during student days or even before. This affects all forms of music-making from classical through jazz and rock to traditional folk. Hearing damage is of serious concern in most forms of music-making, but the most stressful situations and the most physical damage is recorded in the practice of classical music. The long hours of practice at the beginning of a musician's career are the main source of problems that sometimes only reveal themselves in later life. This book is aimed equally at student musicians, practising musicians, and instrumental and vocal teachers, and it aims to help them to begin to understand how and why their bodies function as they do when they perform and also how they may avoid professionally related illness or injury and achieve the highest standards of performance. The principal author, Dr Jaume Rosset i Llobet, is a medical expert and an internationally acclaimed researcher on the subject. He is the Director of a Centre for the Physiology of The Arts in Terrassa, Catalonia, one of the few clinics in the world to which musicians, dancers and performing artists can go for assessment and treatment. The book provides examples and references to the health of musicians covering a wide range of musical genres based on current research, practice and treatment. As well as physiological exposition, copiously illustrated with medical and humorous diagrams, the book covers ergonomics, risk factors, posture, breathing, matters of diet and accommodation of professional needs in daily life.

The first edtion (Spanish only version) of this book was a great success, first printed seven years ago, and its second edition in 2004 was a confirmation not only of that earlier success, but also of a renewed interest in library architecture. This first English version could also be seen as a third edition, given that the first appendix, covering guidelines, is totally new; the numerical data in the second appendix has been revised, and the section dedicated to projects now includes the Jaume Fuster library by Josep Llinàs and Joan Vera. Also information dealing with legal and regulatory framework now has an international focus. This is a practical book which accurately and thoroughly summarizes all the aspects of interest which crop up during project completion, but in such a way it can be easily understood. Moreover, the 21 works which have been selected, mostly from Catalonia and the Iberian Peninsula, are presented as examples of a variety of solutions and high architectural quality.
