Abstract

Adolf Busch (1891–1952) galt zu Lebzeiten als der bedeutendste deutsche Geiger, seine Interpretationen der Werke von Bach, Beethoven und Reger sind bis heute legendär. Zwischen den Weltkriegen prägte er als Solist, als Leiter des Busch-Quartetts und im Duo mit dem Pianisten Rudolf Serkin das Zürcher Musikleben. Kein auswärtiger Musiker trat so häufig in der Tonhalle auf wie er.Den Nationalsozialismus bekämpfte Busch aus voller Überzeugung und lehnte es nach 1933 ab, in Hitler-Deutschland aufzutreten. 1935 wurde er Schweizer Bürger, emigrierte 1939 in die USA und kehrte nach 1947 immer wieder in die Schweiz zurück.Adolf Busch war auch als Komponist bekannt. Ein Blick auf jene Werke, die im Zusammenhang mit dem Zürcher Musikleben entstanden, zeigt aber, dass er als Schöpfer eigener Musik weniger Erfolg hatte.Anhand von Korrespondenzen und Zeitungsberichten vermittelt das Buch Eindrücke von Buschs Wirkung auf die unmittelbaren Zeitgenossen, unter ihnen der Schriftsteller Thomas Mann, die Geigerin Stefi Geyer, der Zürcher Dirigent Volkmar Andreae und der Winterthurer Musikmäzen Werner Reinhart.

Abstract

How do keyboards make music playable? Drawing on theories of media, systems, and cultural techniques, Keys to Play spans Greek myth and contemporary Japanese digital games to chart a genealogy of musical play and its animation via improvisation, performance, and recreation. As a paradigmatic digital interface, the keyboard forms a field of play on which the book’s diverse objects of inquiry—from clavichords to PCs and eighteenth-century musical dice games to the latest rhythm-action titles—enter into analogical relations. Remapping the keyboard’s topography by way of Mozart and Super Mario, who head an expansive cast of historical and virtual actors, Keys to Play invites readers to unlock ludic dimensions of music that are at once old and new.

Abstract

During the 17th and 18th century musicians' mobilities and migrations are essential for the European music history and the cultural exchange of music. Adopting viewpoints that reflect different methodological approaches and diversified research cultures, the book presents studies on central scopes, strategies and artistic outcomes of mobile and migratory musicians as well as on the transfer of music. By looking at elite and non-elite musicians and their everyday mobilities to major and minor centers of music production and practice, new biographical patterns and new stylistic paradigms in the European East, West and South emerge.

Abstract

Das Sound-Design bildet in der Popmusik eine entscheidende Komponente der kreativen Gestaltung und des ästhetischen Empfindens. Nicht der Ton macht die Musik, sondern dem Sound verdankt die Popmusik einen Großteil ihrer emotionalen Wirkung und ihres kommunikativen Gehalts. Zugleich ist Sound ein wichtiges Mittel zur sozialen Positionierung von Musikern und Hörern. Im vorliegenden Band wird erstmals der Versuch unternommen, dieser weitreichenden Bedeutung von Sound auf die Spur zu kommen und damit einen wichtigen Beitrag zur bislang ungeschriebenen Sound-Geschichte zu leisten - mit Beispielen, die von den Beatles und Stones über Kraftwerk, Ramones und Nirvana bis hin zu Blumfeld, den Strokes oder zur so genannten Weltmusik reichen.

Abstract

Significantly, the ’Big Bang’ in reception history of Richard Wagner’s work took place in a place that was torn between the province and the residence, tradition and progress, idea and realization: in the Grand Duchy of Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach. Here Franz Liszt's future-oriented work and the legacy of the Weimar Classic combined under the reign of an ambitious Weimar court to a not unproblematic synthesis, the consequences of which did not leave Wagner unaffected. The contributions of the volume examine these interactions between culture and politics.

Abstract

Simone Verovio was the first printer to produce a substantial number of musical prints using engraved copper plates. This intaglio printing technique not only allowed him to print on demand, but also to combine different kinds of notation on one page opening: voice parts with corresponding harpsichord and lute intabulations. This detailed comparison of intaglio and relief printing techniques in the editions associated with Verovio sheds light on the production of sheet music around 1600 and the comparison of the vocal and instrumental parts provides ground-breaking insights into historical performance practice.

Abstract

With famous music manuscripts such as the St Emmeram codex or the Trent codices and the rise of a musical elite with singer-composers around Dufay and Binchois, the years around 1430 belong to a crucial period in late-medieval music history. The present volume comprises 13 case studies on polyphonic as well as monophonic repertories with a particular focus on the city of Vienna. For the first time, the ‘simultaneity’ of ‘non-simultaneous’ phenomena is scrutinized for Central Europe and for the cultural exchange with neighbouring territories of the Holy Roman Empire, of England, Bohemia and Northern Italy.Due to its specific urban profile and the geographical position, late-medieval Vienna offers an excellent starting point for the study of musical repertories in Central Europe and their appropriation as cultural practice in the first half of the fifteenth century. The ‘simultaneity’ of ‘non-simultaneous’ phenomena is closely connected to the coexistence of different patterns of music patronage within court and nobility, the university, a variety of ecclesiastical institutions (among them the collegiate church of All Saints, later St Stephen’s Cathedral), and diverse strands of upper- and middle-class citizens on the one hand, cultural exchange with neighbouring territories of the Holy Roman Empire, of England, Bohemia and Northern Italy on the other. Manifold strands of polyphonic and monophonic repertories (both sacred and profane), compositional techniques, regionally bound stylistic peculiarities, strategems of music patronage, institutional (or even personal) collectionism, furthermore aspects of music iconography and the role of music within the history of ideas are scrutinized in thirteen chapters, which are conceived as case-studies, plus a detailed thematical introduction. In sum, this is an invaluable contribution to a better understanding of a crucial period of late-medieval music history.
