9781107127210: Transformations of Musical Modernism (Music since 1900)

Profound transformations in the composition, performance and reception of modernist music have taken place in recent decades. This collection brings fresh perspectives to bear upon key questions surrounding the forms that musical modernism takes today, how modern music is performed and heard, and its relationship to earlier music. In sixteen chapters, leading figures in the field and emerging scholars examine modernist music from the inside, in terms of changing practices of composition, musical materials and overarching aesthetic principles, and from the outside, in terms of the changing contextual frameworks in which musical modernism has taken place and been understood. Shaped by a 'rehearing' of modernist music, the picture that emerges redraws the map of musical modernism as a whole and presents a full-scale re-evaluation of what the modernist movement has all been about.

Book Description:

Modernism is key to Western art music yet remains poorly understood. This book offers new perspectives on transformations in recent composition, performance and musical thought. It recasts modernism as a whole, revealing both its connections to tradition and its contemporary vitality.

About the Author:

Erling E. Guldbrandsen is professor at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo where he leads the research group, '20/21 - Musical Trajectories Today'. He has carried out research at IRCAM (Paris) and at the Paul Sacher Foundation (Basel) and received the King's Gold Medal for his work on Boulez. His 2006 article on Mahler and Boulez was awarded the Norwegian prize, 'Scientific Article of the Year'. He has published widely on Wagner and musical drama, musical modernism, music history, analysis, performance practice and aesthetic experience.

Julian Johnson is Regius Professor of Music at Royal Holloway, University of London. He has written five books, including Webern and the Transformation of Nature (Cambridge, 1999) and Mahler's Voices (2009). His most recent book, Out of Time: Music and the Making of Modernity (2015), considers music's constitutive relation to modernity from the sixteenth century to the present. In 2005, he was awarded the Dent Medal of the RMA for 'outstanding contributions to musicology' and, in 2013, became the first holder of the Diamond Jubilee Regius Chair of Music.
