A Language of Its Own: Sense and Meaning in the Making of by Ruth Katz PDF

By Ruth Katz

The Western musical culture has produced not just song, but additionally numerous writings approximately tune that stay in continuous—and vastly influential—dialogue with their topic. With sweeping scope and philosophical intensity, A Language of Its Own strains the previous millennium of this ongoing exchange.


Ruth Katz argues that the indispensible dating among highbrow construction and musical construction gave upward thrust to the Western belief of tune. This evolving and infrequently conflicted method, in flip, formed the artwork shape itself. As rules entered song from the contexts within which it existed, its inner language constructed in tandem with shifts in highbrow and social background. Katz explores how this infrastructure allowed tune to give an explanation for itself from inside of, making a self-referential and rational starting place that has started to erode in recent times.


A magisterial exploration of a regularly missed intersection of Western artwork and philosophy, A Language of Its Own restores song to its rightful position within the heritage of rules.
