Download E-books Filosofia della musica moderna (Piccola biblioteca Einaudi. Nuova serie Vol. 183) (Italian Edition) PDF

By Theodor W. Adorno

A distanza di circa cinquant'anni dalla sua prima pubblicazione, los angeles Filosofia della musica moderna di Theodor W. Adorno può a buon diritto essere annoverata tra gli esiti piú alti della riflessione musicologica e filosofica del secondo Novecento. Nell'interpretazione di Adorno le linee di fondo del Novecento musicale (quantomeno della prima metà del secolo) sono rappresentate da due determine contrapposte, Schönberg e Strawinsky, los angeles cui opera, profondamente immersa nella dialettica storica, riflette le ansie, i timori, le contraddizioni e l. a. violenza del pace. I due compositori, attraverso l. a. musica, rivelano in vario modo los angeles crisi del soggetto, minacciato da forme di dominio che avversano o spengono ogni aspirazione alla libertà. Schönberg dà voce a solitarie istanze individuali che si confrontano con «tutta los angeles tenebra e los angeles colpa del mondo»; Strawinsky crea un universo sonoro il cui «furore antipsicologico» è modellato a immagine della totalità che reprime l'aspirazione del singolo a esprimersi in forme autonome. In entrambi i casi, according to Adorno, los angeles musica non è solo oggetto di interpretazione filosofica, ma si pone essa stessa come soggetto teoretico dal momento che elabora una articolata visione del mondo, della quale le pagine del quantity si propongono come traduzione in termini concettuali. A partire dai microcosmi sonori dei due compositori, dunque, è possibile intraprendere un'analisi (non priva di risvolti etici) degli aspetti piú profondi della contemporaneità. consistent with questi motivi l. a. Filosofia della musica moderna è qualcosa di piú di un saggio di critica, o di sociologia, o di estetica musicale: è un tentativo - according to il quale si possono individuare solo pochissimi precedenti nella storia della cultura - di intendere los angeles musica come strumento di indagine della realtà.
