Between Universal and Local
The book explores two radical changes of cultural and social paradigm that determined the World after 1945 – Modernism and Postmodernism. From the cataclysmic atmosphere emerged the second wave of Modernism. In art this attitude was manifested in the form of a radical break with the aesthetic and stylistic characteristics of prior generations. In architecture the International Style was born, meanwhile similar «universality» was also a characteristic of musical serialism.
From the beginning of the 1970s the wheels again began to turn in the other direction. The powerful destructive will of modernism increasingly waivered, and the period after modernism – postmodernism – began. The book answers questions related to the reasons for these turnarounds, their consequences and their implications.

A Language-Based Approach to Music and Intertextuality
Abstract This paper provides an analytical tool for the study of intertextuality in music. A brief part explains the motives both for and against focusing on music and language parallelisms. It follows the proposal for a systematic linguistics for musicology centered on linguistic layers, which is then applied to the Hjelmslevian semiotics. This results in a stratified musical sign, where several planes of expression affect the plane of content. This approach provides a novel and integrative framework that is useful for analyzing music intertextuality.
