Musical composition is always related to the work’s realisation in sound. A written form is required in order to give shape to the compositional intention. Consequently it is text, the musical text, which mediates between the act of composition and the performance. The object of the musical edition is to prepare the text so that the will of the composer is presented to the musicians in a way that allows the composition to become realised musically. The edition thus inevitably establishes a conflict between divergent orientations, such as between science and practice, preservation and actualization, as well as textual criticism and hermeneutics. Because his editorial decisions are fundamentally interpretive the editor must know and understand the historical and hermeneutical problems of his subject, especially when it comes to determining what stage of the work is to be presented. The editing of music is not always restricted to mediation; it may also represent a translation.
The present collection of essays — all but one, in German — is a Festschrift for Petra Weber’s 60th birthday. It combines contributions on music and music editing by Robert Abels, Fabian Brinkmann, Bernd Edelmann, Thomas Emmerig, Vincent Grau, Hartmuth Kinzler, Michael Klaper, Beate Angelika Kraus, Heinz von Loesch, Albrecht von Massow, Gerhard Poppe, Michael Raab, Bernhold Schmid, Wilhelm Seidel, Glenn Stanley, Andreas Traub, and Reinhard Wiesend. Among the composers treated, Ludwig van Beethoven will occupy a prominent place. Special consideration will also given to Didier Lupi, Francesco Cavalli, Johann Sebastian Bach, Johann Adolf Hasse, Franz Schubert, Giovanni Simone Mayr, Ferruccio Busoni, Carl Orff, and Sándor Veress.
Ad Parnassum Studies
General Editor: Luca Lévi Sala
The series of Studies of the twice-yearly journal Ad Parnassum. A Journal of 18th and 19th-Century Instrumental Music is devoted to individual composers who have made a significant impact in the field of instrumental music.
In this way they remain securely within the journal’s area of interest, though without actually imposing strict limits on the specific themes treated, given that the entire output of the composers concerned may be taken into account, not just the instrumental music.
