  Dynamizmus hudobnej štruktúry. Úvahy o hudobnoteoretickej terminológii
Eva Ferková

terminology, means of expressing music, horizontal and vertical forces, dynamism, dynamics, current of sound, tension and relief

The verbalisation of music involves many perils. Musicologists have surmounted those perils by creating suitable concepts and metaphors and by adopting specialised terminology from other scholarly disciplines. The development of scholarly terminology in musicology goes together with the attempt to find the most adequate means for description and characterisation of musical language. One way of doing so is to regard the current of musical sound, flowing in time, as a means of expressing changes of force, tension, quiet or disquiet. This quality of music may be compared to the idea of a dynamised current of sound, in which the listener is able directly to perceive changes of forces, tensions, kinesis and stasis. These changes are conveyed by relationships: harmonic, melodic-formal structural relationships, and also relationships of sound, metre and rhythm, texture, and register.

  Melodické očakávania v kontexte hudobného štýlu
Zuzana Cenkerová

music psychology, music expectation, melody, music style, statistical analysis

Melodic expectation is generated under the influence of a number of factors including musical style, which plays an important part. Our aim is to research the differences in expectations in two distinct music styles. We wish to establish to what extent they will be governed by style-specific rules or alternatively by universal rules of melodic expectation, such as, for example, the expectation of melodically close or tonally stable notes. To identify the most imoportant differences between a corpus of hymns and a corpus of rock songs, a statistical analysis was carried out (calculating zero- and first-order transitional probabilities among adjacent tones). Subsequently 26 research subjects were asked in a “probe-tone” experiment to rate on a 1 to 7 scale to what extent the last note of the given melody represented its stylistically appropriate continuation. The responses for the hymn samples corresponded better to the style-specific characteristics of the corpus. In contrast, the answers for the rock samples were better correlated with a general model of tonal hierarchy.

  Pozostalosť Karola Plicku a problémy jej spracovania
Miriam Timková

Karol Plicka, literary remains, records of folk songs, manuscript collection of Slovak folk songs

The literary remains of Karol Plicka (1894 – 1987) have been lodged since the second half of the 1980s in the Slovak National Museum in Martin. The paper is devoted to the history and the current state of the remains, describes the manner of their processing and identifies their content. It is centrally concerned with providing a picture of the manuscript notebook records of Slovak folk songs, which form the core of Plicka’s literary remains.

  Jozef Kresánek ako etnomuzikóg
Hana Urbancová

Jozef Kresánek (1913-1986) is regarded as a founding personality of Slovak ethnomusicology. His individual profile is revealed in the light of the essential activities which define the ethnomusicologist’s activity: from field and archival research, through work with the material, to scholarly reflection. In terms of researching Slovak folk music, his individual image corresponds with the profile of the European musical folklorist of the first half of the 20th century. Kresánek, however, outgrows this profile insofar as he managed to integrate folk music into wider contexts of historical development, style, genre, and aesthetic theory. Kresánek’s ethnomusicological work was directed towards the comprehension of “Slovak folk musical thinking”. In his musicological work as a whole, however, this was only a preparatory stage for the formulation of a universalist concept of musical thinking. Within this concept folk music too had an important part to play, viewed from the perspective of an ethnomusicologist who had emerged from the European tradition of this discipline.

  Vrstovník Jozefa Kresánka - Hudobný historik Ernest Zavarský
Jana Lengová

The music historian Ernest Zavarský (1913-1995) is one of the founders of modern Slovak music historiography, with extensive spiritual, scholarly, artistic and musical interests. He was active also as a music commentator, organ-builder, and organologist. Despite political persecution he left behind him an extensive work of music history, which enriched this scholarly discipline with many new key findings. At first his focus was on contemporary Slovak music, especially the compositions of Eugen Suchoň. His central works include published monographs on Ján Levoslav Bella (1955) and Johann Sebastian Bach (1971); the last-named work appeared also in Czech (1979, 1986), Polish (1973, 1979, 1985) and German (2004). His research on the musical life of the town of Kremnica is also a notable contribution. He is the author of a number of articles in the first edition of the German music encyclopaedia MGG.
