The social and cultural study of music
The Social and Cultural Study of Music

  • “Music historians drew on three patently incongruous axioms as though they were self-evident truths: (1) that outstanding composers ‘made’ music history (histories of eighteenth- and ninteenth-century music in particular turned into stylised heroiades); (2) that musical genres evolve in the same way as natural organisms (as though music history were part of natural history); and (3) that this evolution in the musical culture of a nation expresses and embodies its ‘national spirit’ (as though north and south Germany shared a common ‘national music history).”

  • Carl Dahlhaus, Foundations of Music History, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press 1983: 131) (Grundlagen der Musikgeschichte, Cologne: Gerig, 1967)
