In den musiktheoretischen Schriften des in Paris wirkenden Kulturpolitikers, Autors und Musikers Alexandre Étienne Choron (1772–1834) nimmt die Akkordlehre eine wichtige Position ein. Sie bildet die Grundlage seiner gesamten Musiktheorie und somit den Schlüssel zum Verständnis seines Werks. Erstmals wird nun die Akkordlehre ins Zentrum einer umfassenden Untersuchung gestellt und ausgehend von Chorons gedruckten sowie unveröffentlichten Schriften erklärt. Die Studie legt überdies die Quellen für Chorons Konzepte offen und geht der Verbreitung seiner Lehre im Detail nach. Chorons musiktheoretische Schriften enthalten explizite Bezüge auf eine Vielzahl von Autoren des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts. Infolgedessen waren seine Werke damals wie heute häufig dem Vorwurf ausgesetzt, unübersichtlich und konservativ zu sein. Dagegen zeigt die Analyse der Akkordlehre im musiktheoretischen Kontext ihrer Zeit, wie stark Choron die Rezeption fremdsprachiger Theorien gefördert und den tonalité-Diskurs zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts mitgeprägt hat. Die Studie liefert damit einen Beitrag nicht nur zur französischen, sondern auch zur europäischen Geschichte der Musiktheorie im 18. und 19. Jahrhundert. In the music-theoretical writings of the Paris-based cultural politician, author and musician Alexandre Étienne Choron (1772-1834), the theory of chords plays an important role. It forms the foundation of his whole theory of music and thus the key to understanding his work. Now for the first time his theory of chords is the focus of a comprehensive study and is examined on the basis of both his published and unpublished works. The study also reveals the sources of Choron’s ideas and traces in detail the transmission of his theory. Choron’s music-theoretical works contain explicit references to many authors of the 18th and 19th centuries. As a result, his works have often been accused, both then and now, of being confusing and conservative. However, an analysis of the chord theory in the music theoretical context of its time shows how strongly Choron promoted the reception of foreign theories and contributed to the discourse around tonalité in the early 19th century. Thus the study is a contribution to the history of music theory not only in France but also throughout Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Birthday of the Infanta by Oscar Wilde. Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish author, playwright and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, his plays, as well as the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death. "The Birthday of the Infanta" is a historical fiction short story for children by the Irish author Oscar Wilde. It was first published in the 1891 anthology House of Pomegranates, which also includes "The Young King', "The Fisherman and his Soul" and "The Star-Child". The action of "The Birthday of the Infanta" takes place in Spain at an unspecified point in the past. It is the twelfth birthday of the Infanta, the only daughter, and only child, of the King of Spain. For her entertainment, an ugly young dwarf dancer is brought to the court. The Dwarf is completely unaware of how hideous he looks and does not realize that the reason that others laugh in his presence is because they are mocking his appearance. When the Dwarf sees his own reflection for the first time in his life, the consequences are severe.
