Excerpt

Various English translations and English original texts are reprinted by permission of the publishers, as acknowledged below. The translations of chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, and 21 are the work of the editor, who also acknowledges in the following pages the publisher’s permission, when it is required, for the use of the original foreign-language text. The translations of the Adorno articles of 1932 and 1938 and the original texts of Kretzschmar, Halm, Schenker, Schering, and Lalo are in the public domain.

The original notes of the author of each selection are separated from the annotations of the editor or of an earlier translator by the use of Arabic numbers for the former and lower-case letters for the latter.

This volume is the third of three which are designed to present the main trends of Western musical thought in the area of philosophy and aesthetics. Each section of the work, presenting the fundamental statements of a given aesthetic issue, has its own brief introduction defining and interrelating the relevant ideas, and concludes with its own special bibliography. The various sections, and their introductions in particular, seek to clarify the underlying historical continuities of thought.
