The imaginary museum of musical works : an essay in the philosophy of music by Lydia Goehr( Book )

56 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is the difference between a performance of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and the symphony itself? What does it mean for musicians to be faithful to the works they perform? To answer such questions, Lydia Goehr combines philosophical and historical methods of enquiry. Finding Anglo-American philosophy inadequate for the task, she shows that a historical perspective is indispensable to a full understanding of musical ontology. Goehr examines the concepts and assumptions behind the practice of classical music in the nineteenth century and demonstrates how different they were from those of previous centuries. She rejects the finding that the concept of a musical work emerged in the sixteenth century, placing its emergence instead around 1800. She describes how the concept of a work then came to define the norms, expectations, and behaviour that we now associate with classical music. Out of the historical thesis Goehr draws philosophical conclusions about the normative functions of concepts and ideals. She also addresses current debates amongst conductors, early-music performers, and avant-gardists."--Jacket
The Don Giovanni moment : essays on the legacy of an opera( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Don Giovanni Movement' examines the aesthetic and moral legacy of Mozart's operatic masterpiece in the literature, philosophy, and culture of the nineteenth century. Deeply rooted in the enlightenment and romanticism, the opera functions as icon andmyth, and its tensions still resonate today
Elective affinities : musical essays on the history of aesthetic theory by Lydia Goehr( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new book, Lydia Goehr focuses on the history of elective affinities between philosophy and music from German classicism, romanticism, and idealism to the modernist aesthetic theory of Theodor W. Adorno and Arthur C. Danto. Aesthetic theory, she argues, depends on a dynamic philosophy of history centered on tendencies, yearnings, needs, and potentialities. With this in mind, she recasts the theses of Adorno and Danto regarding the death or end of philosophy, art, music, and human experience as arguments for continuation and survival. Elective Affinities tracks the migration of aesthetic and critical theory from Germany to the United States following the catastrophic period of the twentieth century marked by the Second World War."--Jacket
After the end of art : contemporary art and the pale of history by Arthur C Danto( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally delivered as the prestigious A.W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts in 1995, After the End of Art remains a classic of art criticism and philosophy, and continues to generate heated debate for contending that art ended in the 1960s. Arthur Danto, one of the best-known art critics of his time, presents radical insights into art's irrevocable deviation from its previous course and the decline of traditional aesthetics. He demonstrates the necessity for a new type of criticism in the face of contemporary art's wide-open possibilities"-- quatrième de couverture
Politique de l'autonomie musicale : essais philosophiques by Lydia Goehr( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narration and knowledge : including the integral text of Analytical philosophy of history by Arthur C Danto( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narration and Knowledge is a classic work exploring the nature of historical knowledge and its reliance on narrative. Analytical philosopher Arthur C. Danto introduces the concept of "narrative sentences," in which an event is described with reference to later events (for example, "the Thirty Years' War began in 1618") and discusses why such sentences cannot be understood until the later event happens (no one could have said in 1618 that "the Thirty Years' War began today"). Danto compares narrative and scientific explanation and explores the legitimacy of historical laws. He also argues that history is an autonomous and humanist discipline incapable of being reduced to scientific descriptions. Lydia Goehr's new introduction illustrates Danto's main arguments by questioning her very role, first, as an introducer of a book that has not yet been read by readers and, second, as an interpreter of a book written forty years ago. Frank Ankersmit's conclusion revisits the initial impact of the publication of Narration and Knowledge and considers its enduring legacy. - Publisher
Gegen die Vögel! : Theodor W. Adorno über Musik, Konzept und dialektische Bewegung by Lydia Goehr( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critical models : interventions and catchwords by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1959 and his death ten years later, Adorno published fourteen paperback collections of his work, often combining revised and new essays - publications intended for an educated, politically and culturally influential audience. Two collections of those works are combined in this single volume - Interventions: Nine Critical Models (1963) and Catchwords: Critical Models II (1969). These books are passionate examples of Adorno's postwar commitment to unmasking the culture that engendered Nazism and its antihumanist nightmare
