Ethnomusicology : a study of its nature, its problems, methods and representative personalities to which is added a bibliography by Jaap Kunst( Book )

103 editions published between 1955 and 1977 in 3 languages and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet hardly needs a preface; the contents, I think, speak for themselves. It contains a short and carefully brought up to date resume of all that I, as a private University Lecturer in Amsterdam, have tried to teach my pupils. It is intended as a general introduction to ethnomusicology, before going on to the study of the forms of separate music-cultures. I sincerely hope that those, who wish to teach themselves and to qualify in this branch of knowledge, will find a satisfactory basis for self tuition in the matter here brought together. Regarding the possibility of a new edition, any critical remarks or infor mation as to possible desiderata would be very gratefully received. J.K. PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION My request for critical remarks and desiderata has not been ignored. My sincere thanks to all who took the trouble to let me know what they missed in my booklet. Through their collaboration the contents have undergone a considerable improvement and enlargement as compared to the original edition issued in 1950 by the Royal Tropical Institute, Amsterdam, under the title 'Musicologica'. I have taken care to add many particulars from non-European sources, with the result that now the book is no longer so Europe-centric as it was
Music in Java : its history, its theory, and its technique by Jaap Kunst( Book )

64 editions published between 1949 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One day in the summer of 1921 a postal delivery brought me a little packet of reprints from the periodical "Djawa" : articles about Indonesian music by Dr. JAAP KUNST, which until that moment had not come to my notice. A cursory glance was enough to convince me that the author was a very gifted man, who had made a sound and absolutely scientific study of the subject, and thereby made a valuable contribution, by means of careful observation and actual tone-measurements, to the facts known from the older studies by GRONEMAN, LAND and ELLIS. These measure ments were particularly satisfying to me personally, since they constituted an astonishing confirmation of a hypothesis concerning the genesis of tone systems (through the "cycle of blown fifths"), which I had propounded two years previously, without, however, having published it. At the same time it was proved, through the perfect conformity existing between the measured and the theoretical absolute pitches (vibration frequencies), that Indonesian gamelan tuning, too, belongs to the radius of ancient Chinese culture - much the same as is the case with Pan-pipes and xylo phones all over· the world. The first contact between Dr. KUNST and myself led to a regular cor respondence, which especially contributed to a further development of the above-mentioned theory of tone-systems

Supplement to the third edition of Ethnomusicology by Jaap Kunst( Book )

7 editions published between 1960 and 1969 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the appearance of the third edition of 'Ethnomusicology', still more titles have come to my knowledge, all issued before September 1958. The reader will find them in this Supplement. I have used this opportunity to add some more synopses of training possibilities for ethnomusicologists, together with an additional selective list of recordings issued, as far as I know, in 1958. Finally I may express my gratitude to Messrs. Nijhoff who gave me the opportunity to improve my endeavor to give a practically exhaustive survey of what has been published in the field of ethnomusicology up to August 31, 1958.
