Coincidentia Oppositorum – An Ontological Premise for a Universal Musical Grammar


Gheorghe DuţicăDepartment of Theoretical Music Studies“George Enescu” University of Arts, IaşiStr. Horia 7–9, Iaş


This essay is a personal point of view, at the crossroads of numerous other ideas, opinions and attitudes towards the current state of art in general and of music in particular. My purpose is neither to build scenarios nor to come up with verdicts or solutions on the future of art music. I wish, however, to speak loud and clear in a particular way about a Renaissance in which music will get to be acquainted, after a time of confusion and wandering, to a new universal grammar, for the fulfillment of the long strife for planetary communication and communion.
