Includes bibliographical references and index.Part I. Historical Discussion and Musical Analysis. Euterpe in an Ottoman context ; Makam, Usul, Repertoire and Style in Euterpe -- Part II. Transcription and Edition of Euterpe. Methodology ; Edition."Reform, Notation and Ottoman music in Early 19th Century Istanbul presents the first complete set of transcription and edition of Euterpe (1830) from Byzantine neumatic notation into the modified staff notation used by classical Turkish music and is accompanied by a substantial examination of the related historical, theoretical and musical topics. Through a series of Ottoman/Turkish classical vocal music compositions that can be dated to 18th and 19th centuries, Euterpe and related sources reinforce a much broader picture of musical practice and transmission in which we clearly see that the Greek and Turkish traditions are linked. Reform, Notation and Ottoman music in Early 19th Century Istanbul is presented in two parts: historical discussion and musical analysis, and complete transcription and edition of Euterpe. This book will appeal to music scholars and university students interested in minorities, cosmopolitanism in the Middle East and Balkans, the relationship between music and national identity, musical notation, classical Ottoman/Turkish music, Byzantine music, and, most significantly, ethnomusicology"--Critical report in English; songs with words in Turkish or Greek.Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol is a full-time faculty member of the New England Conservatory (NEC) Music History & Musicology department and is the director of the Intercultural Institute at NEC.Description based on online resource; title from digital title page (viewed on April 27, 2023).
