Description

Antithetical Arts constitutes a defence of musical formalism against those who would put literary interpretations on the absolute music canon

Antithetical Arts constitutes a defence of musical formalism against those who would put literary interpretations on the absolute music canon. In Part I, the historical origins of both the literary interpretation of absolute music and musical formalism are laid out. In Part II, specific attempts to put literary interpretations on various works of the absolute music canon are examined and criticized. Finally, in Part III, the question is raised as to what the human significance of absolute music is, if it does not lie in its representational or narrative content.

Peter Kivy presents a fascinating critical examination of the two rival ways of understanding instrumental music. He argues against 'literary' interpretation in terms of representational or narrative content, and defends musical formalism. Along the way he discusses interpretations of a range of works in the canon of absolute music.

Antithetical arts: on the ancient quarrel between literature and music, Peter Kivy. p. cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. ISBN 9780199562800 1. Music and literature. The ancient quarrel with which I deal in this book is neither ancient in the sense of dating back to antiquity, nor ancient in the sense of being very very old. It is old, to be sure, by ordinary standards, having its beginnings in the rise of pure instrumental music in the second half of the eighteenth century. Thus it is close on two hundred and fty years old, which is old enough: a good deal older, one supposes, than the Ancient Mariner, who, Coleridge thought, deserved the epithet.

The title and subtitle of Peter Kivy's new book might be considered as slightly misleading, as it is. .So there is no general antithesis between literature and music.

The title and subtitle of Peter Kivy's new book might be considered as slightly misleading, as it is the meaning of pure or absolute music and its value which are really its main concern. Kivy is not at all interested in the respective merits of two different art forms, and he doesn't deny the possibility of successfully combining meaningful words and beautiful noises in songs or operas.

Antithetical Arts constitutes a defence of musical formalism against those who would put literary interpretations on the absolute music canon. In Part I, the historical origins of both the literary interpretation of absolute music and musical formalism are laid out. In Part II, specific attempts to put literary interpretations on various works of the absolute music canon are examined and criticized. Finally, in Part III, the question is raised as to what the human significance of absolute music is, if it does not lie in its representational or narrative content. The answer is that, as yet, philosophy has no answer, and that the question should be considered an important one for philosophers of art to consider, and to try to answer without appeal to representational or narrative content.
