Abstract

The present seventh volume of the new historical-critical complete edition of Eduard Hanslick's works contains texts of the years 1864 to 1865, which are for the most part contributions from the Vienna "Presse" and the "Neue Freie Presse", which Hanslick changed to when it was founded in 1864. In terms of content the texts offer a wide range. Apart from topical reviews there are basic essays on musical aesthetics, thoughts on the Italian opera in Vienna, historico-cultural accounts as well as basic reflections about the concert life in Vienna at that time. In particular Hanslick's research on the history of music in Vienna, which leads to "Geschichte des Concertwesens in Wien" published by Wilhelm Braumüller in 1869, shows in various single essays and a huge coherent series in "Oesterreichische Revue". Some articles were published shortly after in national music journals such as the "Niederrheinische Musik-Zeitung" or the Berlin music journal "Echo". Later Hanslick revised some of them for his well-known anthologies ("Die moderne Oper", "Aus dem Concertsaal. Geschichte des Concertwesens in Wien, II"). As before these texts were provided with lists of readings, which are printed subsequent to the respective article. The principles of publication did not change. Minor variations are: different spelling, change from spaced writing to normal distance of characters or vice versa, slight modifications of the wording, updating or additions. Major changes mainly consist in leaving out large parts of the text or rearranging text passages from different sources regarding particular subjects. The basic change in Hanslick's occupation as a critic that is his stronger attention to reviewing the performance, - as can be seen from the 1860s in particular - cannot be substantiated so well by his own editions, because he often left out parts related to the concert. From that point of view this edition not only provides a better overview of the Vienna concert life in these years than Hanslick's own edition but it also notes down in a much more precise way his changed approach to writing. Most of the texts, however, are completely unknown today. The essay in the comment part deals with Hanslick's change to the "Neue Freie Presse" and the importance of the latter for the circle of its authors. As before the notes characterize every single text briefly and analyse them according to their aesthetic relevance. The volume ends with a scientific apparatus (list of emended printing errors, list of abbreviations, bibliography and index of names).

Abstract

The present sixth volume of the new historic-critical complete edition of Eduard Hanslick´s works contains texts of the years 1862 to 1863, which are for the most part contributions from the Vienna "Presse". Some articles were published shortly after in national music journals such as the "Niederrheinische Musik-Zeitung" or the Berlin music journal "Echo". Hanslick revised som of them later for his well-known anthologies ("Die moderne Oper", aus dem Konzertsaal. Geschichte des Konzertwesens in Wien, II2). As before these texts were provided with lists of variant readings, which are printed subsequent to the respective article. The principles of publication were not changed. Minor variations are: different spelling, change from spaced writing to normal distance of characters or vice versa, smaller modification of the wording, updating or additions. Major changes mainly consist in leaving out large parts of the text or rearranging text passages from different sources to particular subjects. The fundamental change in Hanslick´s occupation as a critic as can be seen exactly from the 1860s, that is his stronger attention to reviewing the performance cannot be substantiated by his own editions so well because he often left out parts related to the concert. From that point of view this edition provides not only a better survey of the Vienna concert life in these years than Hanslick´s own edition but it also notes down in a much more precise way his changed approach to writing. Most of the texts, however, are completely unknown today. The main essay in the comment part deals with the music-aesthetic consequences of the phenomenon of boredom, the typical syndrome of the 19th century, which Hanslick´s reviews shed some light on. It becomes clear that there are more criteria in Hanslick that are important for an assessment of a work than those laid down in "Vom Musikalisch-Schönen". An important position in Hanslick´s life as a music critik take his trips to music festivals or world expositions. His travel diaries are still very informative and shown an open-minded cosmopolitan. Hanslick´s report on the bustle of the 1862 word exposition in London from an initially neutral attitude of an observer seems in a certain way to turn into a surrealistic inferno of the arising modern age and confirms unconsciously what Walter Benjamin realized first and formulated in his "Passagenwerk". This matter is dealt with a particular length in the notes, which as before briefly characterize, annotate or analyse for its aesthetic relevance every single text. Added to the annotations is an excerpt from a letter by August Wilhelm Ambros, which illustrates some aspects from Hanslick´s aesthetic of boredom from a different point of view.

Abstract

The collection of essays considers the art journal Propyläen that was edited by Goethe in the years between 1798 and 1800 for the first time as a whole. This enterprise, which was of great significance for the history of aesthetics, will be placed in a new light. The book situates the texts within their historical contexts, and thus provides a key resource for future research, for literary as well as art studies.
