Abstract

The contribution is a survey of music as a social practice on the territory of today’s Slovenia during the Great War. It addresses the Slovenian music culture during the Great War from three complementary perspectives. Firstly, it gives a glimpse of the musical practice in Ljubljana, where, beside the entertaining music practice, subscription concerts were offered as well. The second section, the most elaborated one, focuses on the Slovenian music production connected to the Great War in two respects: on the music for (and about) it, as well as on the musical practice based on the events of the period that is considered, by many, to be odious. It offers a taste of the musical culture in Slovenia during the Great War and of the repertories of music pertaining to soldiery, concentrating on one in-depth analytical fragment of the song Tam na karpatskoj gori (Prošnja umirajočega junaka). Thirdly, the last section is devoted to the reception of the music connected to the Great War in Slovenia after 1918.
