"In 1947 Theodor Adorno, one of the seminal European philosophers of the postwar years, announced his return after exile in the United States to a devastated Europe by writing Philosophy of New Music. Intensely polemical from its first publication, every aspect of this work was met with extreme reactions, from stark dismissal to outrage. Even Schoenberg reviled it." "Despite the controversy, Philosophy of New Music became highly regarded and widely read among musicians, scholars, and social philosophers. Marking a major turning point in his musicological philosophy, Adorno located a critique of musical reproduction as internal to composition itself, rather than as a matter of the reproduction of musical performance. Consisting of two distinct essays, "Schoenberg and Progress" and "Stravinsky and Reaction," this work poses the musical extremes in which Adorno perceived the struggle for the cultural future of Europe, between human emancipation and barbarism, between the compositional techniques and achievements of Schoenberg and Stravinsky." "In this completely new translation - presented along with an extensive introduction by distinguished translator Robert Hullot-Kentor - Philosophy of New Music emerges as a key to the whole of Adorno's illustrious and influential oeuvre."--Jacket

Aesthetic theory by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
52 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,302 libraries worldwide
The culmination of a lifetime of aesthetic investigation, Aesthetic Theory is Adorno's major work, a defense of modernism that is paradoxical in its defense of illusion. In it, Adorno takes up the problem of art in a day when "it goes without saying that nothing concerning art goes without saying." In the course of his discussion, Adorno revisits such concepts as the sublime, the ugly, and the beautiful, demonstrating that concepts such as these are reservoirs of human experience. These experiences ultimately underlie aesthetics, for in Adorno's formulation "art is the sedimented history of human misery."

In search of Wagner by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
69 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,142 libraries worldwide
Richard Wagner's works are among the most controversial in the history of European music--because of their powerful aesthetic qualities and, in wider political terms, because of their eventual assimilation into the official culture of the Third Reich. This concise synoptic account by the most brilliant exponent of Frankfurt School Marxism subtly interweaves these artistic and ideological qualities. It provides deft musicological analyses of Wagner's scores and of his compositional techniques, orchestration and staging methods, quoting copiously from the music dramas themselves. At the same time it offers incisive reflections on Wagner's social character and the ideological impulses of his artistic activity [Publisher description]
Critical models : interventions and catchwords by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 1,107 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
The culture industry : selected essays on mass culture by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
57 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 997 libraries worldwide
"The creation of the Frankfurt School of critical theory in the 1920s saw the birth of some of the most exciting and challenging writings of the twentieth century. It is out of this background that the great critic Theodor Adorno emerged. His finest essays are collected here, offering the reader unparalled insights into Adorno's thoughts on culture. He argued that the culture industry commodified and standardised all art. In turn this suffocated individuality and destroyed critical thinking. At the time, Adorno was accused by his many detractors of everything from overreaction to deranged hysteria. In today's world, where even the least cynical of consumers is aware of the influence of the media, Adorno's work takes on a more immediate significance
Ästhetische Theorie by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
188 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 972 libraries worldwide
L'ultimo libro, postumo, di Adorno è senz'altro l'opera più concettualmente aspra del filosofo francofortese. L'asprezza deriva dal compito che l'autore si è visto assegnare dal proprio oggetto: pensare l'opera d'arte dall'interno spingendola al concetto pur sapendo che essa è qualcosa di altro dal concetto. Pensarla senza cedere alle facili sirene dell'empatia e del vissuto; non in un'astratta essenza, bensì nella complessa fenomenicità delle sue manifestazioni storiche. Pensare l'opera d'arte, dunque, nella sua appartenenza al mondo delle merci, ma fino in fondo, ossia come una mercé assoluta che nega se stessa, non facile asilo di una interiorità e di una soggettività in via di sparizione, bensì "cosa" che si rifiuta alla reificazione. Pensare il negativo che si mostra come il vero e proprio interno dell'opera d'arte contemporanea, senza consegnarlo ad un'ontologia edificante, ma cogliendovi piuttosto l'attestazione oggettiva che il circolo dell'effettualità non è perfetto e chiuso in se stesso

Quasi una fantasia : essays on modern music by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
37 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 811 libraries worldwide
This collection covers a wide range of topics, from a moving study of Bizetʹs Carmen to an entertainingly caustic exploration of the hierarchies of the auditorium. Especially significant is Adornoʹs "dialectical portrait" of Stravinsky, in which Adorno both reconsiders and refines his damning indictment of the composer in Philosophy on Modern Music. Throughout, Adorno is sustained by the conviction that music is supremely human because it is capable of communicating inhumanity while resisting it. His belief in the benevolent and transformative power of music reverberates throughout these writings. -- Publisher description
