Abstract

La musique traditionnelle de I'Azerbayjan et la science des muqâms is a valuable contribution to the literature on Islamic music theory. During presents a comprehensive description of Azeri modal theory, compares it with neighbouring musical theories, and finds a connection between contemporary Azeri muqâmlar and the medieval treatises of Safi al-Din and others. His musicological framework implicitly suggests the existence of a distinct Azeri muqâm ("mode," pl., muqamlâr) tradition that is firmly allied to Iran by virtue of historical and religious ties and separated from an Arabic and Turkish musical heritage. Employing a cross-cultural methodology, the author uses Azeri muqâm as the cornerstone of a sophisticated musicological comparison of theoretical practices in the context of Islamic music.
