Cinco lecciones sobre Wagner

Durante más de un siglo, la música de Wagner ha sido objeto de un intenso debate entre filósofos, muchos de los cuales han atacado su entramado ideológico –según algunos, antisemita y reaccionario–. En este libro, sin duda una de las grandes aportaciones recientes al amplio corpus de bibliografía sobre el músico alemán, Alain Badiou, filósofo radical y entusiasta wagneriano, ofrece una lectura detallada de las respuestas críticas a la obra del compositor, entre las que se incluyen los escritos de Adorno y la cooptación por parte del nacionalsocialismo. Asimismo ofrece un nuevo y clarificador enfoque sobre el'caso Wagner', que remata con una penetrante interpretación de esa gran -y polémica- obra que es'Parsifal'. El volumen, que se completa con un largo epílogo de Zizek, constituye un intento, escrito desde la pasión, de poner de manifiesto la relevancia de Wagner en el mundo contemporáneo.

El gran siglo de la música europea

Tantos movimientos culturales y sociales determinan un siglo XIX muy denso y desconcertante. La cultura se difunde en el pueblo y produce una serie de conmociones políticas y económicas que nadie habría podido prever con anterioridad. Por todas estas causas el silgo XIX es al mismo tiempo progresista y desconcertante, como podemos ver en esta breve colección de imágenes con el que queremos recordarlo.

 

 

 

     
     

Language, Music, and Mind

In this book I examine the relationship between memory and verbalization as it figures in the perception of tonal music. Specifically, I invoke recent psychological theories of perceptual memory and language processing in order to shed light on the traditional philosophical problem of ineffable musical knowledge. Philosophers of art have long written of musical knowledge that cannot be put into words. My hope is that, in addition to illuminating an old philosophical puzzle, the present work carves out a new approach to problems in aesthetics__an approach that augments traditional “aprioristic” treatments with the explanatory power and empirical testability of contemporary cognitive science.

 

 

 

     
     

Musical Knowledge : Intuition, Analysis and Music Education

The understanding of music involves the mastery of its various layers of meaning. Sometimes this meaning can be acquired through human insight; at other times, it can be learned. The central concern of Musical Knowledge is the tension between intuitive and analytical ways of making sense of the world. Keith Swanwick examines this relationship on three levels: in considering music as a way of knowing; as the apparent predicament between qualitative and quantitative research paradigms; and as a tension in education. Keith Swanwick guides his reader from a theoretical exploration of musical knowledge, through an examination of ways of researching the musical experience to a concluding section which will be of direct practical help to teachers. He suggests ways in which music education can be a vital transaction, giving examples across a range of music teaching, including school classroom and instrumental studios. The book will be of interest to anyone who makes or responds to music.

 

 

 

     
     

 Approaches to Meaning in Music

Musical meaning has become a seductively compelling topic for music scholars over the last few decades. The term meaning suggests a special kind of knowledge, a privileged insight into our fascination with the experience of music. Indeed, explorations into musical meaning lay claim to embodying the central core of our discipline, justifying its very existence by revealing the source of music’s power, by translating its implicit message.

 

 

 

     
       

 Counterpoint, Composition and Musica Ficta

The editors of these volumes now seek to develop and explore analytical methodologies for the discussion of early music as music. In this book we explore compositional procedures, tonal structures, musical borrowing, and other topics, focusing both on individual compositions and on theoretical systems. We seek to encourage critical writing about music that will be useful to performers, listeners, and scholars.

 

 

 

     
 

   

Interpreting Music

Interpreting Music is a comprehensive essay on understanding musical meaning and performing music meaningfully—'interpreting music'in both senses of the term. Synthesizing and advancing two decades of highly influential work, Lawrence Kramer fundamentally rethinks the concepts of work, score, performance, performativity, interpretation, and meaning—even the very concept of music—while breaking down conventional wisdom and received ideas. Kramer argues that music, far from being closed to interpretation, is ideally open to it, and that musical interpretation is the paradigm of interpretation in general. The book illustrates the many dimensions of interpreting music through a series of case studies drawn from the classical repertoire, but its methods and principles carry over to other repertoires just as they carry beyond music by working through music to wider philosophical and cultural questions.

 

 

 

     
 

   

Understand Music Theory

This book takes the fundamentals and presents them with easy-to-follow explanations, examples and exercises. It contains information that can be applied to all types of music, whether instrumental or vocal, classical or popular. Useful charts, tables and a glossary are found at the back of the book for quick reference. I have also given a few suggestions for further study, including use of the internet.

 

 

 

     
 

   

Music Theory for the Music Professional

Music : Composition, Interpretation and Effects

Music is an art form whose medium is sound organized in time. Common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture. The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Music can be divided into genres and subgenres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to individual interpretation, and occasionally controversial. Within'the arts', music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art, and auditory art. To people in many cultures, music is inextricably intertwined into their way of life. Music is known to have many benefits for health, ranging from inducing relaxation and sleep to improving a depressed mood. Music also enhances cognitive function such as attention to task, communication, learning and memory. This new and important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this dynamic field of study and highlights topics such as: rap music and its effect on sexual attitudes, music videos and risky driving, burnout and music use, music memory and the right hippocampus, and others.

 

 

 

     
     

Art Music : Love, Listening and Soulfulness

Listening to music is not merely something one does, but something central to a way of living. Listening has the power to transport one into another way of being. It is a mode of feeling and forms the bedrock of deep emotion. Written from the viewpoint of a philosophy of sensibility, Matthew Del Nevo notes that this perspective may not be in fashion, but it follows a long tradition.Del Nevo emphasizes the aesthetic experience of listening to art music as it has developed and disintegrated in Western civilization. He recognizes a deep psychological element to what he calls soul—or more accurately sensibility. He addresses music in a non-technical way, taking up the powerful art theory of Charles Baudelaire, the music philosophy of Schopenhauer and Richard Wagner, and takes a strong critical stand against modernist intellectual art music.The importance of this book for the musically- literate reader is its insight into the metaphysics of nostalgia. This comprehension is missing from nearly all musical instruction because we have lost sight of it. Del Nevo asserts that this understanding must be brought back into our culture. And since this is a book about listening to art music, it is no less about sensibility and its cultivation, which in its object form we call culture. An engaging book, Art Music will appeal to those interested in music, culture, and philosophy.

Music Theory and Its Methods : Structures, Challenges, Directions

This collection of essays explores a wide range of topics current in the field of music theory, including analytical methodologies for pretonal, tonal, and post-tonal music, assessment of notation as a vehicle for interpreting compositional strategies in different repertoires, and employment of approaches informed by cognitive, aesthetic, and ethnomusicological studies of music. Authors reflect critically on challenges within their specific areas of expertise and probe directions in which advances can be made and difficulties overcome. The results of these investigations will benefit readers, from early career researchers to experienced scholars, whose interests not only intersect with the topics presented here but which also encompass broad methodological issues affecting music theory.

Each chapter will focus on a specific music style and its associated geographic locale. The salient musical and cultural features associated with each example are discussed in detail to increase our appreciation of the music. Relevant artists will be highlighted and suggestions for further reading and listening will be offered. By the end of the book, the student should be able to 1) recognize a variety of world music styles, 2) articulate musical and cultural knowledge associated with each style, and 3) identify important artists related to the genre. Supplementing the text will be a web site fcreated by the author) featuring the author's world music map, enabling students to explore pop music cultures as they relate to each other; as well as an iTunes playlist for all the highlighted selections in the book. This book should strongly appeal to Intro to World Music Courses for non-majors who wish to study popular rather than traditional musics of the world, which would encompass a large majority of students enrolled in these courses.

 

 

 

     
     

Music Education and Perceptions

 In this book, the authors' examine how musical development and learning are established in the family environment and the effects of music on children 's development. Other chapters examine musical and non - musical learning as a reflection of the internationalization of China 's sociopolitical ideologies and the relative nationalism of its education system; the planning of musical objectives in the psychomotor domain ; and a multicultural perspective of the “ Orff - Schulwerk ” music - movement approach, using it primarily as a possible means of expressing one's own sensations and recognizing the sensations of others.

Music Sociology : Examining the Role of Music in Social Life

Music Sociology explores 16 different genres to demonstrate that music everywhere reflects social values, organisational processes, meanings and individual identity. Presenting original ethnographic research, the contributors use descriptions of subcultures to explain the concepts of music sociology, including the rituals that link people to music, the past and each other. Music Sociology introduces the sociology of music to those who may not be familiar with it and provides a basic historical perspective on popular music in America and beyond.

 

 

 

     
     

Music, Analysis, Experience : New Perspectives in Musical Semiotics

Transdisciplinary and intermedial analysis of the experience of music Nowadays musical semiotics no longer ignores the fundamental challenges raised by cognitive sciences, ethology, or linguistics. Creation, action and experience play an increasing role in how we understand music, a sounding structure impinging upon our body, our mind, and the world we live in. Not discarding music as a closed system, an integral experience of music demands a transdisciplinary dialogue with other domains as well. Music, Analysis, Experience brings together contributions by semioticians, performers, and scholars from cognitive sciences, philosophy, and cultural studies, and deals with these fundamental questionings. Transdisciplinary and intermedial approaches to music meet musicologically oriented contributions to classical music, pop music, South American song, opera, narratology, and philosophy.

 

 

 

     
 

   

Mozart : A Life

Eminent historian Paul Johnson dazzles with a rich, succinct portrait of Mozart and his musicAs he's done in Napoleon, Churchill, Jesus, and Darwin, acclaimed historian and author Paul Johnson here offers a concise, illuminating biography of Mozart. Johnson's focus is on the music—Mozart's wondrous output of composition and his uncanny gift for instrumentation.Liszt once said that Mozart composed more bars than a trained copyist could write in a lifetime. Mozart's gift and skill with instruments was also remarkable as he mastered all of them except the harp. For example, no sooner had the clarinet been invented and introduced than Mozart began playing and composing for it.In addition to his many insights into Mozart's music, Johnson also challenges the many myths that have followed Mozart, including those about the composer's health, wealth, religion, and relationships. Always engaging, Johnson offers readers and music lovers a superb examination of Mozart and his glorious music, which is still performed every day in concert halls and opera houses around the world.

         
 

   

La Danza and Other Great Piano Transcriptions

Franz Liszt (1811–1886) was not only a brilliant and innovative composer and the greatest piano virtuoso of the 19th century; he was also a generous popularizer of other composers'music. One of his primary methods was through his superb piano transcriptions of great orchestral, operatic, and other pieces. These transcriptions — many of them masterpieces in their own right — made it possible for people living far from the concert hall to re-create and enjoy music to which they would otherwise have had no access.Liszt's incomparable mastery of the art of transcription is reflected in this rich selection of favorites, including Rossini's'La Danza,'Bach's'Organ Fantasy and Fugue in G minor,'Beethoven's'Joyous gathering of the peasants'from the'Pastorale'Symphony, Mendelssohn's'Wedding March'and'Dance of the Elves'from A Midsummer Night's Dream,'The Trout'and'Erikönig'by Schubert, the'Polonaise'from Tchaikovsky's EugeneOnegin, and many others.

Other religious songs in the collection come from England's rich tradition of popular religious lyric poetry, and include William Byrd's'Susanna Farye,'the anonymously written'Deo Gracias Anglia'(The Agincort Carol), and Thomas Ravenscroft's'O Lord, Turne Now Away Thy Face'and'Remember O Thou Man.'Approximately half of the songs are secular, some from the popular tradition and others from the courtly poets and musicians surrounding such musically inclined monarchs as Henry VIII — who himself is represented in this collection with two charming songs,'With Owt Dyscorde'and'O My Hart.'Among the notable composers of Tudor and Elizabethan England represented here are Orlando Gibbons, John Dowland, and Thomas Weelkes.

 

 

 

     
 

   

Music As Message : An Introduction to Musical Semantics

Music is often defined as art for the ear, as the language of feeling, of the heart, as sound play, or as the science of composition. But music also conveys intellectual and emotional experiences, literary, religious, philosophical, social and political ideas. Countless composers encrypt contents in their music that can be deciphered by a variety of methods. This book is designed as an introduction to the basic questions of musical semantics and discusses Beethoven's committed art, the core ideas of the «Ring of the Nibelung» and of the «Symphony of a Thousand», Wagner's idea of a religion of art, the relation of music and poetry, the musico-literary conceptions of composers, the large field of program music and the history of the impact of Gustav Mahler.

After Sound : Toward a Critical Music

After Sound considers contemporary art practices that reconceive music beyond the limitation of sound. This book is called After Sound because music and sound are, in Barrett's account, different entities. While musicology and sound art theory alike typically equate music with pure instrumental sound, or absolute music, Barrett posits music as an expanded field of artistic practice encompassing a range of different media and symbolic relationships. The works discussed in After Sound thus use performance, text scores, musical automata, video, social practice, and installation while they articulate a novel aesthetic space for a radically engaged musical practice. Coining the term 'critical music', this book examines a diverse collection of art projects which intervene into specific political and philosophical conflicts by exploring music's unique historical forms. Through a series of intimate studies of artworks surveyed from the visual and performing arts of the past ten years-Pussy Riot, Ultra-red, Hong-Kai Wang, Peter Ablinger, Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz, and others-After Sound offers a significant revision to the way we think about music. The book as a whole offers a way out of one of the most vexing deadlocks of contemporary cultural criticism: the choice between a sound art effectively divorced from the formal-historical coordinates of musical practice and the hermetic music that dominates new music circles today.

 

 

 

     
 

   

Music And/as Process

Music and/as Process brings together ideas about music and the notion of process from different sub-fields within musicology and from related fields in the creative arts as a whole. These can be loosely categorised into three broad areas – composition, performance and analysis – but work in all three of these groups in the volume overlaps into the others, covers a broad range of other musicological sub-fields, and draws inspiration from, non-musicological fields. Music and/as Process comprises chapters written by a mix of scholars; some are leaders in their field and some are newer researchers, but all share an innovative and forward-thinking attitude to music research, often not well represented within ‘traditional' musicology. Much of the work represented here started as papers or discussions at one of the Royal Musical Association (RMA) Music and/as Process Study Group Annual Conferences. The first section of the book deals with the analysis of performance and the performance of analysis. The historical nature of music and the recognition of pieces as musical ‘works' in the traditional sense is questioned by the authors, and is a factor in the analyses which address processes in composing, performing, and listening, and the links between these, in three very different but interlinking ways. These three approaches posit new directions and territory for musical analysis. The second section builds on the first, framing performance and/as process from the individual perspectives of the authors and their experiences as practitioners. Music by Berio, de Falla, music by the authors and their collaborators, and music composed for the authors are explored through looking at processes of interpretation and risk; processes which further undermine the ontology of the musical ‘work' as traditionally understood, and bring the practitioner as active agent to the foreground of an examination of musical discourse. The third section encounters and questions the musical ‘work' at its inception, exploring composition and/as process through its encounters with performance, analysis, collaboration, improvisation, translation, experimentation and cross-disciplinarity. Through explorations of new music, the way in which practitioners relate to music frame a personal and reflective account of the creative process, finally looking beyond music to musicology.

Musica Mathematica : Traditions and Innovations in Contemporary Music

The concept of «musica mathematica» seeks to accurately examine the intersection of two seemingly radically different subject areas. From the perspective of an European perception, the definition of the science of music was a result of the Pythagorean concept of universal harmony. The Pythagoreans were the first in European culture to raise the issue of uniting music and mathematics, sound and number. In the three parts of the monograph, versatile cases of the intersection of music and mathematics are displayed, moving from philosophical and aesthetic considerations about mathesis to practical studies, discussing the interaction between music and other kinds of art (architecture, painting, poetry and literature), and providing a practical research of contemporary music compositions.
