This book discusses the effects of cultural globalization on processes of composition and distribution of art music in the 20th and 21st century. Christian Utz provides the foundations of a global music historiography, building on new models such as transnationalism, entangled histories, and reflexive globalization. The relationship between music and broader changes in society forms the central focus and is treated as a pivotal music-historical dynamic.||Dieses Buch diskutiert die Auswirkungen der kulturellen Globalisierung auf Prozesse der Komposition und Verbreitung von Kunstmusik im 20. und 21.
