Abstract [en]

The starting point for the following reflections about performance practice and its relationship to the musical work is a critical article in The New Grove Dictionary (6th ed. 1980). The article deals with one of the legendary musicians of the twentieth century, the Russian-American pianist Vladimir Horowitz who is criticised in a way that is unusual in a dictionary. My intention is not so much to take a stand to this criticism but to widen the approach and examine the statements (arguments) from a broader perspective, to contribute to a more general discussion about musical evaluations and their attachment to different opinions on what phenomenon the musical work is. During the 1920s and 1930s there was a radical change in ideals of composition and performance practice. The hypothesis of the author is that this change is grounded not only in new aesthetical ideals, but also in a different opinion on the nature of the musical work. This shift in paradigm is the result of a series of changes in society in which also (the) musicology played an important role.
