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.

Zu Jeremias Gotthelfs Musikverständnis
Summary: Jeremias Gotthelf whose real name was Albert Bitzius, was born in 1797 in Murten, which was at that time a rural town belonging to the Canton of Bern. He died in 1854 in Lützelflüh, Emmental, where he had served as a pastor for two decades and where his writings were produced. The historical-critical edition of his works consists of 42 volumes, published between 1911 and 1977. The central focus of the present chapter are Gotthelf’s considerations on church music, house music and dance music, as well as the cultural framing of these genres in nineteenth-century Bernese Plateau as presented in his novels, stories, speeches and letters.
