Musicianship, Musical Interpretation, and Cultural Identity: Challenges for Philosophy and the Social Sciences


David G. Hebert, PhD, Professor of Music, Grieg Academy
Faculty of Education, Bergen University College



Abstract:

The notion of musicianship – or artistry in the field of music – is a phenomenon that raises an array of philosophical questions intricately tied to problems of interpretation, particularly when music is considered cross-culturally as a profoundly meaningful global practice. In this talk, I will explore the implications of how cultural differences affect our understandings of various forms of music, as well as how relationships between musical practices and cultural identities are rapidly transforming as a consequence of both globalization and the popularization of new media technologies. I will also explore the implications of recent empirical research in relation to these themes and attempt to distill a reasonable projection of possible paths that musicianship and music research may take in the future.
