New Music Concepts 2016 (Hong Kong)

Considerations of the concept of form and content in music against a background of cultural and philosophical studies

Part of the New Music Concepts book series (NMC volume 3)
ISBN: 978-88-6551-221-0

Author(s): Paulina Tendera, Wojciech Rubis

Abstract: Everyone who comes into contact with a musical work has the right to his or her own interpretation and experiences built on the basis of both form and content, insofar as this is possible. Cultural and musical knowledge broadens the scope of this experience, but does not change the ultimate goal of art, which is aesthetic satisfaction. In the relationship between a work and its listener, an additional function is fulfilled by the cultural preparation of the subject, providing a range of relevant and objective (verifiable) interpretive tools to penetrate to the content of the work.

Keywords: Form and content of music, philosophy of music, ontology of music
