This subject introduces Julia Kristeva’s intertextual theory and Mikhail Bakhtin’s theory from which Kristeva’s is derived. The emphasis, however, is on the occurrence of different types of musical intertextuality (quotation, stylistic allusion, pastiche, incorporated genre, etc.) in a range of repertoire from the 18th to the 20th century. Intertextual works are considered from analytical, contextual, reception-based, and philosophical perspectives - a holistic approach that introduces advanced methods and means of interpreting music. Assessment is research and essayoriented and the subject focuses on the development of advanced skills in these areas.
