Abstract

Considering the frequently stated assumption that the current position of (and within) the field of music analysis is "uneasy", the author, through four focuses, discusses some vital characteristics of music analysis. Firstly, he speaks about morfology ("Formenlehre") in music, secondly, about the demarcation of analytical levels, thirdly, he comments on C. Lévi-Strauss's concrete example of analysis, and finally he concludes with a remark on music analysis as an activity of analysing the language of music.
