Could you please tell me where this quote is from? It is from an ABRSM publication. "At advanced levels, the ability to assess artistic integrity, adherence to performance practice coupled with an understanding of style, historical position, idiom, form and style of the works are essential to critical listening"

- This question does not appear to be about music practice, performance, composition, technique, theory, or history within the scope defined in the help center.
It is in the syllabus of the Music Performance diplomas. It can be downloaded on the ABRSM website - http://www.abrsm.org/fileadmin/user_upload/diplomas/performance/performanceDiplomaFull.pdf
