GUIDO ADLER'S "THE SCOPE, METHOD, AND AIM OF MUSICOLOGY" (1885):AN ENGLISH TRANSLATIONWITH AN HISTORICO-ANALYTICAL COMMENTARY
by Erica Mugglestone Introduction of Austro-German In 1884 a triumvirate music historians, Friedrich Chrysander, PhilippSpitta,and Guido Adler,foundedthefirst journal of musicology,'thenewestfledgeling amongstthesciences,2 namely,the Musikwissenschaft [MusicologyQuarterly].The Vierteljahrsschrift ffir firstissue opened with a paper written the scope, by Adler, defining methodand aim of thenew science.This provedto be a potent formative influence on the establishment and development of the academic disciplineof musicologyin Europe and elsewhere, notably the United States of America,an influence thatis strongly feltto thepresent day. Thus, in theNew Grove Dictionaryof Music and Musicians (1980: s.v. "Musicology," by Vincent Duckles, et al.), its importanceis made evidentin thatit is summarised as thestillextantmodel of musicology. accessibleto a It is thepurposeof thispaper to render Adler'sthought the historicalcontextin which the wider readershipby: 1) sketching its themes, and assumptions; 2) indicating metaphors paper was written; of the text. a translation in a sense, its metalanguage;3) providing Withregardto thefirst two of theseaspects,commentary is directed is made to determine Adler's solelyat thepaper in question.No attempt overallphilosophyof history or thedevelopment of his thought beyond of all his assessment 1885; such would be the aim of a comprehensive writings.And with respect to the third of the above aspects, in thetext, carewas takento adhereas closelyas possibleto the translating withregardto itssemantic content. Thus, forexample,theterm original Tonkunstis translated as 'tonal art', ratherthanapplyingthe generally term'music'in itsstead, in orderto retain,ifat all possible,some of the connotationsthatare implicitin Adler's use of the term,as well as to of an interpretation thatmight not be justified. preventthe imposition However, with respectto Adler's syntax,it was deemed advisable to break down lengthy sentences and paragraphsintoshorter units,and to utilisepunctuation and othertypographical in orderto clarify formating and promoteease of comprehension.
