Hybrid Edition: Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Österreich (DTÖ)

Within the series of the Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Österreich (DTÖ) a hybrid edition of several of the sources will be published. The printed volume will consist of the diplomatic transcription of the original tablatures and the edition in common music notation (=CMN) with a short scholarly introduction and a short critical report. Cross-references will be given to corresponding online editions using URLs. Only the online edition will present the originals (facsimile), transcriptions of the original tablatures into different tablature notations, concordance lists and the possibilities to compare concordances from different sources, as well as other scholarly texts. The planned volume will contain: A-Wn Mus.Hs. 18827, A-Wn Mus.Hs. 18688, PL-WRk 352, A-Wn Cod. 9704, A-Wn Cod. 960, A-Lis 546 = c. 200 fols. (c. 300 pages, A4). The work will be carried out in cooperation with Prof Dr Birgit Lodes (leader of the publications of the DTÖ) and with consultations from the editorial board of the DTÖ. This study introduces a new format to the DTÖ series, which ensures the regular output and presentation of our results. It will thus reach an even wider target audience. If this format is successful, we will try to extend it to other holdings and thus develop the connection with ‘Denkmäler’ series. The research questions posed here concern international connectivity of selected ‘Austrian sources’ at all levels of our entire E-LAUTE edition.
