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.
Volksoboen: Ihre emotionale Wirkung und soziale Bedeutung
Ihre emotionale Wirkung und soziale Bedeutung
Heinz Stefan Herzka
Summary: For around three thousand years shawms have been present, and known for particularly intense effect that they have on emotional states. They were and are used in rituals and to mobilise human groups. The author and his spouse travelled regularly over a period of thirty years to musicians and instrument makers in almost all countries that have a lively performance practice of these ancestors of all reed instruments. Today, the richest collection of shawms can be found at the musée des instruments in Céret, Southern France. In his chapter, the author deals with the reception of shawm music and provides contemporary examples. In addition he explores the current ambivalent and sometimes discriminatory attitude towards the musicians, the instruments and the music since antiquity.
