Example text

As it became increasingly clear that, under the conditions of a market economy, art music had no chance of winning the competition for the entertainment-craving public with popular music, the former had to justify its existence by claiming to pursue different aims, and since the mimetic idea was governing the  < previous page < previous page page_141 page_142 next page > next page > Page 142 production of popular music, it was natural for art musicians to want to abandon it. Nothing is more characteristic of this situation than the snobbish scorn that Theodor W.

Neither embodying the intelligible harmony nor intimating the absolute, abstract music now had to survive on its own, as nothing but itself, a pure sounding form with no transcendent meaning. By 1854 music could afford this antimetaphysical turn: there was so much great instrumental music around that the practice no longer needed philosophical or religious crutches to justify itself. Of the two developments that jointly shaped the practice of art music in the twentieth century, the near-abandonment of mimesis to popular music and the replacement of the metaphysical with a formalist interpretation of abstraction, it was the former that reflected and reinforced what from the perspective of our own fin de siècle appears to have marked this practice most profoundly.
