Du canon au sublime

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: À la croisée des arts. Sublime et musique religieuse en Europe (xviie-xviiie siècles)
  • Author: Psychoyou (Théodora)
  • Abstract: In writings on music from the second half of the seventeenth century, beauty breaks away from the hierarchy of styles and is seen to result from a “masterly touch” which deviates from “good composition”. Paradoxically, the mastered transgression which confers genius on a work escapes the norm. The « je ne sçay quoi » of the sublime represents an alternative to the Aristotelian model of an ordered nature.
