La première querelle de la musique italienne : prémices d’une critique du spectacle musical

Abstract : The first dispute of Italian music confronts, at the very beginning of the 18th century, the abbé François Raguenet, seduced by operas and oratorios heard during a journey in Italy, and Jean-Laurent Le Cerf de la Viéville, champion of French style. Their argument is built on relations of performances, which are supposed to give access to the feelings of their authors. In both cases, the possibility of writing such an experience is problematic. Mostly, the relevance of such a project is at stake. A process of legitimization seeks to reduce the paradox that supposes to describe a particular performance, unreachable in itself, in order to erect it as an example from which the critical evaluation is developed. The personal judgment, rearranged in aesthetical theory, becomes a guarantee to the account of experience, which announces the modern review.
