INTERDISCIPLINÁRNE KONTEXTY KRESÁNKOVEJ TEÓRIE O SLOVENSKEJ ĽUDOVEJ PIESNI
Interdisciplinary contexts of Kresánek ś theory on Slovak folk song
Languages of publication
Jozef Kresánek’s monograph (1951) Slovenská ľudová pieseň zo stanoviska hudobného (Slovak folk song from the musical standpoint) is fundamental signiﬁcance for Slovak musicology. Here the author summarised the currently existing ﬁndings on Slovak folk song and music and revaluated them on a modern methodological basis, forming a systematically compact genetic-historical theory. Its foundation is the concept of “folk musical thinking” and its development on the territory of Slovakia. He synthesises insights from a number of scholarly disciplines: musical folkloristics and comparative musicology of the ﬁrst half of the 20th century, music theory, music historiography, musical sociology, and partly also musical aesthetics and musical psychology. The interdisciplinary context of his research has already incorporated all the attributes of an integrated model of musicology. Jozef Kresánek afterwards applied this model in the entirety of his scholarly work and thus inﬂuenced the further evolution of Slovak musicology.
