Abstract: 

A reflection on the state of the art admits the science of musical performance as a developing discipline, leaving open analytical studies to organise not only the diachronic sense of interpretative practices but their articulation with performative contemporaneity. In this way, it is possible to purse a study to understand and analyse musical performance in the last decades, as well as the critical reception by performers, critics and theoreticians. Using critical and analytical models basically established in the 20th century – paradigms such as the circle of Schoenberg and the Second Vienna School, Schenker’s musical criticism and the Darmstadt School, the movement of historicity and authenticity – our objective is the subsequent synchronic updating of those models in the more recent context of performative practices and critical studies on performance.
