Abstract

Jan Philipp Sprick , Reinhard Bahr and Michael von Troschke ( eds. ), Musiktheorie im Kontext: 5. Kongress der Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie, Hamburg 2005 ( Berlin : Weidler , 2008 ). 571 pp. €59.00. ISBN 978‐3‐89693‐515‐1 ( pb ). For most of the second half of the twentieth century, the discipline of music theory in continental Europe led a largely hidden existence. The educational system in many countries fostered a binary model that clearly distinguished between ‘academic’ and ‘professional’ institutions of higher learning, with universities belonging to the former category and conservatories to the latter. In this context, European music theory found itself doubly isolated. Since its home was the conservatory, it was cut off from the scholarly mainstream of the humanities, including musicology; within its own institution, it was regarded as an esoteric discipline that had only limited relevance for the performer. The image of music theory increasingly evolved into that of a purely practical discipline, a Handwerkslehre or craft that seemed to be more concerned with teaching abstract rules and models in a historical vacuum than with reflecting on actual works of music. This image was not always an accurate representation of facts. Still, even when
