This volume derives from the like-named symposium held by the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel in April 2011. Topics related to musical performance and authorship were illuminated from various angles in eleven papers and three round-table discussions, with a special emphasis on developments postdating the Second World War. In addition to the textual and authorial dimensions between composition and performance, the papers also touched on the medial and performative expansion of music, which generates wholly novel sets of problems and concepts of authorship.
