"Theodor Adorno and the Culture Industry" ()
This volume includes essays on prominent figures in music Alban Berg, Anton von Webern, Arturo Toscanini , compositional technique the prehistory of the twelve-tone row, the function of counterpoint in new music , and the larger questions of musical sociology for which Adorno is most famous, including the relation of interpretation to audience, the ideological function of opera, and the historical meaning of musical technique. The essay on the sociology of music, for example, represents an early statement of what would soon become trademark principles of his mode of musical analysis, serving as a catalyst for his famous study Introduction to the Sociology of Music.
Some forty years after most of these essays were written, they remain fresh and relevant. In part, this is because Adorno's method has only recently begun to make substantial inroads into Anglo-American musicology.
And the interdisciplinary nature of his thought provides a precursor for today's interdisciplinary studies. Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
