Studies on the origin of harmonic tonality by Carl Dahlhaus( )

37 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carl Dahlhaus was without doubt the premier musicologist of the postwar generation, a giant whose recent death was mourned the world over. Translated here for the first time, this fundamental work on the development of tonality shows his complete mastery of the theory of harmony. In it Dahlhaus explains the modern concepts of harmony and tonality, reviewing in the process the important theories of Rameau, Sechter, Ftis, Riemann, and Schenker. He contrasts the familiar premises of chordal composition with the lesser known precepts of intervallic composition, the basis for polyphonic music in

Richard Wagner's music dramas by Carl Dahlhaus( Book )

48 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous studies of Wagner's operas have tended to approach the works as chunks of autobiography, philosophical speculations or historical-political comments on the age in which they were written. Professor Dahlhaus dissociates himself from all such ventures. His aim is to discover by careful analysis of the works from Der fliegende Hollander to Parsifal what are the dominant features of 'music drama' and how Wagner achieves such profound, unified effects. Professor Dahlhaus cites music examples only when they are germane to his argument and requires from his readers no more than a limited amount of technical musical knowledge. This is not, therefore, an exclusively specialist study. Rather, it will help the enthusiastic beginner to come to terms with these great works of art as well as offering many valuable insights to the experienced Wagnerian
Ludwig van Beethoven : approaches to his music by Carl Dahlhaus( Book )

49 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many books have been written about Beethoven. But it is rare to find one that seeks an alternative between the fragmentation found in most specialized studies and the superficial overview typical of popular biography. In this volume, Carl Dahlhaus, one of the century's leading musicologists, combines interpretations of individual works that focus on issues of composition and musical history, with excursions into the musical aesthetics of the period around 1800; an age that was not only a "classical" period in the history of the arts but also one in that aesthetics carved itself a place in the center of philosophical attention. The theme of the book is the reconstruction of Beethoven's "musical thinking" from the evidence in the works themselves and their context in the history of ideas
Foundations of music history by Carl Dahlhaus( Book )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first thoroughgoing study in any language of the philosophy of music history. Drawing on competing philosophies of history throughout the ages, from the Enlightenment to the French structuralists, from the German idealist tradition to Russian formalism, the late Carl Dahlhaus applies the thoughts of these various schools to the specialist requirements of music history and assesses their advantages and shortcomings. Special attention is given to an appraisal of whether Marxist critiques are still viable and where they stand in need of rethinking. For this English edition, the author provided an extensive annotated bibliography

"¿Es posible designar con una fórmula sintética el carácter específico de la música? O, dicho de otro modo, ¿qué es la música? ¿Y qué es lo extramusical? Las cuestiones de fondo ligadas a la definición de la música como concepto y los cambios que esta concepción ha sufrido en la tradición cultural de Occidente desde la Antigüedad hasta nuestros días son tratados de forma compleja en este libro. Si la Antigüedad desde Pitágoras asoció la música con unas proporciones numéricas en las que se reflejaba la armonía del universo, si san Agustín habló de la scientia bene modulandi, la práctica musical que emerge al inicio de la Edad Moderna remite a la 'teoría de los afectos' y a la esfera de las emociones; a partir del racionalismo del siglo XVIII y el irracionalismo romántico se llega más tarde a la reivindicación, por un lado, de la falta de contenido semántico, y por otra, a la concepción de la música como un "lenguaje{OCLCbr#BB} que da forma, por decirlo con Webern, a 'pensamientos musicales'"_Contracub
