October 1–4, 2015, Universität der Künste Berlin und Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler”
Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of German reunification, the fifteenth Annual Congress of the Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie will deal with the temporal dimension of music and music theory. The structuring of musical time occurs on all hierarchical levels. It is a fundamental aspect of music perception; furthermore, it relates to musical compositions as well as to theories and conceptions of music in historical contexts.
The complex relationships among compositional history, history of music theory, and cultural/social history are an object of music-theoretical reflection, whereby the significance of historicity itself is subjected to historical change. Dealing with a multiplicity of time levels characterizes musical life and teaching. The practices, concepts, and theories of different time periods thereby come into relationship with the present.
