Appel à contributions pour le dossier « Towards the Integration of the Symphonic Repertoire. Musical Analysis Applied to the Research on Wind Bands », dir. par David Ferreiro, pour la revue Estudios bandísticos · Wind Band Studies.
« One of the most important challenges that current Spanish musicology must face is the integration into its studies, in a coherent and balanced way, of musical analysis. However, we must avoid implementing it as a complex theoretical exercise, which tends to remain empty of content if it focuses on a mere description of the musical object. On the contrary, we have to understand it as a functional tool that allows us to study the scores according to the context in which they were created. Hence, the necessity of elaborating new methodological proposals that seek a constant balance between cultural history and music theory emerges with a clear aim: to understand the technical characteristics of the different repertoires, but without neglecting their relationship with the context and considering the different communication processes that are established between composers and the audiences.
Since wind bands are considered a first-rate agent of social cohesion, they cannot be relegated of these approaches if we want them to be integrated into the general musicological discourses. Therefore, the present dossier on musical analysis applied to the research on wind bands aims to be the first contact with a field that is going to be explore in depth within a close future. Yet, it starts here with a double objective: first, to achieve more visibility and the consolidation of the band repertoire, in which, of course, new compositions must be included; and, second, to move towards an integration of the symphonic repertoire that put aside the pejorative hierarchization that the classic band-orchestra dichotomy usually supposes. »
