Naming: music and the postmodern
Judy Lochhead pages -


Use of the term postmodernism is infrequent in writing about music. This is partly because of the conservatism and autonomy of the academic study of music, and its tradition of technical music analysis by composers. However there have often been postmodern theories and practices in the field that have not been named as such by their authors. Works by Berio, Rochberg, del Tredici, Gubaidulina and Daugherty are discussed, all which are analysed as instances of postmodern practice.
