Miscellanea

Series contains miscellaneous documents related to Zuckerkandl's life and work.

Report by an anonymous reviewer

A reviewer for Princeton University Press notes their impressions of Zuckerkandl's Law and freedom in the tonal world (eventually published as The Sense of Music). They suggest corrections to the manuscript. Zuckerkandl's responses to the suggestions appear as marginalia.

Report by Roger Sessions

Sessions completes a Princeton University Press Reader's Report regarding Zuckerkandl's manuscript, Law and freedom in the tonal world (eventually published as The Sense of Music). He recommends that the manuscript should be published, suggesting that Zuckerkandl revise the chapter on "meter and rhythm." Sessions states that he has been in contact with Zuckerkandl about this issue.

[Thoughts after Faust Seminar]

Possibly a letter draft (to Jung?), written after a seminar on Faust. Zuckerkandl writes that Faust refuses to be understood as part of certain fundamental categories; not because he is an exception, but because he reflects the reality of experience. Goethe thus provides an alternative framework to understanding the self, of polarity, i.e. a dynamic event or interaction between two poles, rather than dualism, i.e. a static identification with one of the two poles. To this Goethe adds a vertical axis of "Steigerung" (increase or improvement). Zuckerkandl then lists examples of events which establish Faust as a character defined as tension between two poles. Zuckerkandl corrected typos and added page numbers in pen.

The educational power of music

Zuckerkandl presents music theory to non-professionals. He begins by working "one note at a time," introducing concepts such as the construction of scales, major and minor modality, scale degrees, and meter and rhythm. Zuckerkandl then builds on this foundation, discussing ornamental tones and introductory Roman numeral analysis. By the end of the book, readers should be able to read simple [Schenkerian] “skeletons.”

[Appendices for The educational power of music]

Appendix A provides a visual way of explaining the creation of seven-note scales. Appendix B supplies an introductory discussion of rhythm and meter. Appendix D is a supplementary pedagogical example in which Zuckerkandl demonstrates how he would approach presenting the first movement from Beethoven's Appassionata to students. Appendix D contains many score examples and [Schenkerian] "skeletons" from the movement.

Das Leben der Töne[:] Eine neue Elementarlehre der Musik

Zuckerkandl presents music theory to non-professionals, focusing on relating listening experience to concepts from music theory. In the first half of this book, Zuckerkandl describes the behaviour of pitches within the diatonic system, explains major/minor modality, explores intervals, shows the construction of tertian chords, and introduces the relationship between rhythm, meter, and pitch. Zuckerkandl then builds on this foundation in the second half of the book, discussing ornamental tones and Schenkerian concepts such as "the fundamental line" and foreground, middleground, and background layers.

Music and Reality

Zuckerkandl explores the relationship between music and concepts of reality. He differentiates between “outer” and “inner” worlds, relating the “outer” to scientific inquiry and materialist approaches in philosophy. Zuckerkandl asserts that music is more closely connected to “inner” rather than “outer” reality. In the document, Zuckerkandl refers to a copyright case in which a popular music singer was accused of plagiarism by a colleague; the courts found that both had "plagiarized" Schubert. An analysis comparing this unnamed German pop song and Schubert's "Die böse Farbe" is included in Appendix I.

Die Raum-Erfahrung der Musik (The experience of space in music)

Zuckerkandl explores the experience of space through listening. Drawing from mathematics, philosophy, and psychology, Zuckerkandl compares ideas regarding objects in physical space to that of pitches in musical space. He claims that pitch space is a "place-less space" ("ortloser Raum"). Zuckerkandl concludes that the laws of nature are "only half" understood through numbers and mathematics; the world must also be musical.

Zeit und Raum der musikalischen Erfahrung (Time and space of musical experience) [Version B]

Zuckerkandl explores the spatial and temporal experience of music. The text is comprised of four sections: pitch, movement, time, and space; section headers have been pencilled in. In the first section, Zuckerkandl explains that pitches do not refer to objects in the real world, but rather, to other pitches. They form a self-contained "force-field" determined by the behaviour of the pitches ("Kraftfeld"). In his discussion of movement, Zuckerkandl outlines problems with conceptualizing pitch movement as an object "in different positions in space" ("an verschiedenen Stellen des Raumes"). In the section on time, Zuckerkandl asserts that music is particularly affected by time in the form of rhythm. In the final section on space, Zuckerkandl concludes that musical space is “directional” ("gerichteter Raum").

Zeit und Raum der musikalischen Erfahrung (Time and space of musical experience) [Version A]

Zuckerkandl explores the spatial and temporal experience of music. The text is comprised of four sections: pitch, movement, time, and space; section headers have been pencilled in. In the first section, Zuckerkandl explains that pitches in a diatonic scale form a self-contained "force-field" ("Kraftfeld"). Zuckerkandl’s discussion of movement outlines problems with conceptualizing pitch movement as an object "in different positions in pitch-space" ("an verschiedenen Stellen des Tonraumes"). In the section on time, Zuckerkandl asserts that music is particularly affected by time in the form of rhythm. In the final section on space, Zuckerkandl adapts Palagyi's idea of "fliessender Raum" and applies it to pitch-space.

Preparing a Nation for the Life with Music - Partly Outline, Partly Rough Draft

Zuckerkandl drafts an outline for an essay that explores "how [...] people [should] be prepared for the function of [becoming] a musical audience." Zuckerkandl suggests the American people "need some kind of musical education" to accomplish this. He critiques current offerings at liberal arts colleges, namely, the "Music Appreciation" course. Zuckerkandl concludes by explaining and exalting the Great Books Program at St. John's College.

Mimesis

Zuckerkandl investigates Aristotle’s use of the word “mimesis.”

On Mimesis [Version B]

Zuckerkandl explores Aristotle’s use of the word “mimesis” in relation to the arts. Zuckerkandl focuses on determining how the arts derive “significance” or develop meaning. Zuckerkandl determines that the arts can become meaningful 1) because they refer to or depict extant objects or situations in the real world, or 2) the medium utilizes its elements in such a way that the assemblage of parts becomes meaningful. Zuckerkandl dubs these “transcendent” and “immanent” meanings, respectively. He cites music as an example of an art form that possesses both transcendent and immanent meaning.

On musical education at the American University

Zuckerkandl explores why there is such "widespread dissatisfaction with musical education in the American college." He asserts that the American music education system was adopted from nineteenth-century Europe and explores problems with this practice. Specifically, Zuckerkandl asserts that European schools were concerned with producing professional musicians rather than listeners or audiences. Nineteenth-century German education thus "fits less perfectly the needs of twentieth-century America," where the "chief demand is for an understanding of the music made."

Thoughts on a Music Appreciation Record

Zuckerkandl muses on the advent of the LP and its potential applications in music education. He suggests recording an “elementary music course” that would help non-professionals deepen their appreciation of music.

Musikbücher in der FB (Music books in the library) [Version B]

Zuckerkandl speculates as to how music books available to interested non-professional individuals can be improved. He suggests that while readers wish to understand their experience of music (they seek a particular kind of "Verstehen"), books presently offer approaches that are either too technical, or focus on biographical and historical scholarship. Zuckerkandl acknowledges that a book that discusses musical experience for lay people does not exist. To remedy this, Zuckerkandl suggests a book that presents music similarly to literature and art history. In addition, Zuckerkandl recommends a multimedia approach that includes both written text and audio examples so that the listener needn't rely on their imagination or recollection of music. Zuckerkandl then briefly explores ways of connecting book and LP (referred to as "die Verbindung von Buch und Platte").

Vom Wachstum des Kunstwerks

Zuckerkandl explores the creation of works of art. He is particularly concerned with the roles of “growth” and “work” (“Wachstum” and “Werk”). Using examples from music by Bach and Beethoven, Zuckerkandl demonstrates coalescing of growth (“Wachstum”) and work (“Werk”). Zuckerkandl considers if machines are capable of composing as humans do. This draft is very close to the published form.

Der singende und der sprechende Mensch

Zuckerkandl examines the nature of singing and speaking as a human activity. He asserts that speaking is logical and concrete, singing connects people to the abstract or spiritual. He asserts that both are needed in order for people to fully describe their relationship with the world.

Das Neuer einer Epoche

Short outline of a proposal to summarize what is new in the modern era via the field in which it is most clearly expressed, i.e. philosophy. Zuckerkandl proposes works on the following thinkers, under the collective title "Creators of the modern intellectual world": Bergson, Husserl, Scheler, Dacque, Frobenius, Spengler, Jung, Klage, Schroedinger, Stefan George, and Goethe.

Ein Neuer Deutscher Literarischer Verlag

Article on the advantages of a new German-language publisher's location in Vienna. Being outside the borders of the German Reich, the publisher can function as a multilingual advocate for European unity, and publish works not based on political affiliations, but based on quality alone. Zuckerkandl additionally remarks that the publisher can take new aesthetic approaches to literature, as all intellectual areas (poetry, science, literature, etc.) blend together in modern works.
