ABSTRACT
This paper extends the methodological framework of aesthetics of music towards reception aesthetics and the Nitra Theory of Translation of Anton Popovič. This methodology may be used also for interpretation of music with special emphasis on intertextuality, explaining different approaches of Slovak literary and musical science to pastiche. Pastiche has a great artistic value for literary science; however, it is not paid any special attention by musicology. Traditional interpretation of music is verified primarily based on compositional aspects of music. For the present time, however, an important and determining factor is also the very way of music’s existence: ways of creating it and ways of listening to it. Interpretation of contemporary music should also consider reasons and motivations for realizing music. The works of post-modern musicians contain a wide variety of music types from assorted performances through various types of improvised compositions to concert classical music pieces. Interpretation of individual pieces goes beyond traditional rules, i.e. primary meaning of theoretical analysis upon which interpretation positions may be based. It appears that instead of the primacy of theoretical analysis, a reception approach to the given music is on the rise. It is important to be familiar with the situation in which music naturally “lives” and only then proceed to its interpretation. The results of theoretical analysis only may be misguiding and may imply inadequate results.
