Festschrift für Ernst Lichtenhahn zum 80. Geburtstag – Festschrift for Ernst Lichtenhahn’s 80th Birthday
Without any exaggeration one can call Ernst Lichtenhahn a doyen of Swiss music research. As one of the few musicologists in the German-speaking sphere he has succeeded in merging different linguistic-cultural and disciplinary research traditions. In his manner of scientific understanding, historical and systematic musicology, ethnomusicology and music practice are methodologically and topically related closely to each other, entirely consistent with the holistic concept of music research as developed by Guido Adler. With the title «Communicating Music», this Festschrift for Ernst Lichtenhahn’s 80 birthday attempts to take up and to further develop the diversity of scientific issues as emerged through such an understanding. It collects papers that come from a variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives to deal with issues about the discursive nature of music, about mediation and transformation processes of music as well as about the discourse on music itself.

Summary: Today “music” is considered as term for auditive data. In history, music was, however, related to a mode of reflection for approximately 2,000 years – a possible way to discuss auditive data. Al-Farabi and Glarean represent two very different milestones in the reception of the concept of music. Both are incorporated into a tradition in which the oeuvre of Aristotle was employed as the sediment of knowledge (philosophia). Al-Farabi’s can be compared to the Medieval Latin tradition of music theory in many terms. In contrast Glarean takes advantage of a new perspective, namely the discussion of empirical data as it was inspired by the newly discovered studies of geography. To discuss Al-Farabi and Glarean thus means to compare similar start-points and to study the differences between methodological details.
