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.
Musikpädagogik zwischen ästhetischer Teilhabe und sozialer Praxis
Summary: If music has its purpose in itself, or whether it should serve primarily to educational and social goals, is one of the fundamental questions of music education. Different institutions operating in this field give different answers to this question. This was confirmed by research that accompanied a music education project involving a music school and a youth cultural centre. The underlying different professional and cultural understandings are in the same tradition as the controversy over “musical education” in the middle of the twentieth century. The unstoppable rise of Anglo-American rock and pop music within senior youth culture took place during this dispute. Music education has to face this reality, because it affects not only the repertoire, but also the way of transmission itself. To escape the dangers of over-polarisation of views, the “Twelve Continuum Transmission Framework” by Huib Schippers is a useful analytical tool, which also can be applied to institutions. On the basis of such analysis, alliances of convenience can be concluded where the strengths of each approach come to fruition. Thus, music making and transmission can be accessible by a wider circle of individuals and groups.
„Wenig Kunst – viel Sozialisation?“, betitelte die „Schweizer Musikzeitung“ vor einigen Jahren einen Bericht über ein Zürcher Klassenmusizieren-Projekt. „Das Klassenmusizieren ist, nach diesem Augenschein in den Musikschulen der Stadt Zürich zu urteilen, in erster Linie ein pädagogisches Angebot. Es zielt auf Sozialisation, auf das Gemeinschaftserlebnis und weniger auf...
