Jean-Jacques Rousseau e l'analisi musicale

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] Are taken into consideration three writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau dedicated to three different songs: the monologue of the same name opera Armide by Lully, the '' Italian Alceste "and the scene of Orpheus and the Furies in the second act of '' Orpheus ed Euridice "by Gluck. We can qualify them all as examples of application of the analytical method based on the definition of analysis given by the philosopher and the modern musicology. We draw some general observations about the limits of the analysis. We derive even some interpretative hypotheses on the fallout of the myth Rousseau origin on the development of the musical language and its modern transformation, and some still present indications on philosophical musical object definition that is to be analyzed.
