Sounds of Revelation: Aesthetic-Political Theology in Schoenberg's Moses und Aron

Sounds of Revelation: Aesthetic-Political Theology in Schoenberg's Moses und Aron <jats:p> Ruth HaCohen (Hebrew University) explores Modernism's artistic exploration of its relationship to theology by taking up Schoenberg's late, unfinished opera Moses and Aaron. Reading that opera as a theological-political-aesthetic Tractatus in the tradition of Spinoza, HaCohen draws out the theological implications of Schoenberg's radical rethinking of formal conventions as these organize the relationship between music and text. </jats:p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Modernist Cultures Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

<jats:p> Ruth HaCohen (Hebrew University) explores Modernism's artistic exploration of its relationship to theology by taking up Schoenberg's late, unfinished opera Moses and Aaron. Reading that opera as a theological-political-aesthetic Tractatus in the tradition of Spinoza, HaCohen draws out the theological implications of Schoenberg's radical rethinking of formal conventions as these organize the relationship between music and text. </jats:p>
