Symposium: Discursive and Empirical Approaches to the Aesthetics of Improvised Music

In recent years, improvisation has increasingly become an object of research in musicology. In view of the large number of research projects and publications, it is noticeable that aesthetic questions play a rather subordinate role or are not considered at all. Against this background, how can approaches to the aesthetics of improvised music in its diversity be shaped? In four impulse lectures, the Jour fixe presents two discursive-theoretical and two empirical approaches that deal with this question.
