Abstract

Gianmario Borio ( ed. ), L'orizzonte filosofico del comporre nel ventesimo secolo/The Philosophical Horizon of Composition in the Twentieth Century ( Venice : Fondazione Ugo e Olga Levi , 2003 ). 420 pp. € 40.00. ISBN 88‐15‐09412‐1 ( pb ). The Philosophical Horizon of Composition in the Twentieth Century comprises the proceedings of a seminar organised in 2000 by the Venetian Fondazione Ugo e Olga Levi. The organisers took the beginning of the new millennium as an occasion to take stock of musical thinking in the twentieth century. As the editor, Gianmario Borio, indicates in the preface (p. 1), the diversity and multiplicity of musical styles and practices of the past century presented the major methodological problem, since they preclude any attempt at an exhaustive or logically discursive investigation. However, both the musical practices themselves and the philosophical horizon surrounding them are fragmented and discontinuous. Furthermore, an investigation of this horizon must by its very nature be ‘interdisciplinary’, to the extent that composers, philosophers, musicologists, literary scientists, music critics, performers and the like can be seen to contribute to musical thinking.
