Pierre Boulez: Polyphonie X (1951): Ein gescheitertes, weil zurückgezogenes Werk: ein "tombeau à tête reposée"?
Archiv für Musikwissenschaft (2015) Vol. 72, No. 4, pp. 277-301

The subject of this article is not Boulez's earlier version of Polyphonie (1949-1950) with its open form partly based on quarter-tones, but the later version from 1951 with the title Polyphonie X, which was subsequently withdrawn by the composer-a highly ...

"Verso la sensibilità, non verso la teoria": Luigi Dallapiccolas Weg zur Zwölftontechnik
Archiv für Musikwissenschaft (2015) Vol. 72, No. 4, pp. 262-276

Dallapiccola is rightly recognized as one of the most important Italian composers of the twentieth century. His interest in dodecaphony was initially kindled from the closing chapters of Schoenberg's Harmonielehre ("Quarten-Akkorde"). The 1930s were then devoted to cautious searching and ...

Archiv für Musikwissenschaft (2015) Vol. 72, No. 4, pp. 245-261

Lulu geht
Archiv für Musikwissenschaft (2015) Vol. 72, No. 3, pp. 213-237

"Lulu" can be considered a mythological sister of "Undine." In the same way that the mermaid in Ingeborg Bachmann's story "Undine Goes" (Undine geht) denies herself to the human world, the abused and mentally tortured Lulu in Peter Konwitschny's interpretation ...

Paradoxa, Sackgassen und die "geschichtliche Wirklichkeit" interkultureller Rezeption
Archiv für Musikwissenschaft (2015) Vol. 72, No. 3, pp. 188-212

Elements in Hugo Riemann's late universalist music theory-disclosed in condensed form in his Folkloristische Tonalitätsstudien (1916)-took a surprising, even nationalistically biased turn in Japan during the 1930s and 40s. Riemann's approach to Chinese and Japanese music is reviewed here in ...

About

The Archiv für Musikwissenschaft ("Musicology Archive") reflects the state of research in music history and current methodology in the discipline of musicology. Founded in 1918, the journal interrupted publication in 1927, but has appeared continuously since 1952. It is one of the leading professional journals in the German-speaking countries, but enjoys global recognition and standing. At the same time, the refereed journal provides young musicologists a platform for the publication of their research findings. In spite of its historical emphasis, the journal is open to all areas of research in music, whether it be transdisciplinary, intercultural, ethnographic or analytical. In its broad spectrum of musical subjects and approaches, the Archiv für Musikwissenschaft serves the goal of promoting contemporary theoretical insights in music.
