History and the Ontology of the Musical Work

History and the Ontology of the Musical Work

(p.298) CHAPTER 12 History and the Ontology of the Musical Work
With Voice and Pen

Leo Treitler

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that the question about the ontological state of music must be addressed by taking into account the particular historical situation of the music in question, in its particular culture. It is both a historical and a philosophical question. It is important to project what we regard as self-evident answers onto medieval music from our experience with modern music, but also to show that those answers are in fact not always so self-evident even with respect to modern music.

Keywords:   ontological state, medieval music, modern music, musical works, philosopy
