Glasba povezuje in ločuje ljudi, skupnosti, ljudstva in religije
Musicology is in danger of becoming an "orchid-like profession" with no significant role in understanding the spirit of the time because it has remained too concerned with the glorification of the 19th century’s Eurocentric composers. What we need is comparative musicology to capture all the complexity of music – the phenomenon that is deeply implanted in our consciousness and is present in many areas of human life, such as cults, politics, medical treatment, work and law. Music has a great power, but can also be misused. It can bring people and nations closer together, or tear them apart. All this is mentioned in a musicology-related research of the area where both the German and Slav cultures meet and where musicologists from both sides have been involved for decades.
