The research fields of the department lie predominantly in the history of music from the 18th to the 20th century: Reception-historical and analytical-hermeneutical aspects are examined as well as cultural-sociological and aesthetic questions, philology, popular music, baroque music, Viennese classical music and new music of the 20th century.
Other focal points of research are folk music of the alpine region and questions about music as a cultural phenomenon. In numerous interdepartmental projects as well as with national and international cooperation partners, a wide range of topics are touched upon: Questions of reception, treatises on composers, forms of cultural perception (European and American music in comparison) and much more.
