Summary/Abstract: In past centuries, the sonatas for violin and keyboard showed a strong preeminence of one instrument over the other: sometimes the violin was assigned the leading role, and sometimes it was subordinated to the keyboard. Yet Mozart and Beethoven worked out a completely new concept promoting a balanced dialogue between the two instruments. In a similar way, the past decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union and those of the Constitutional Courts of some Member States could be read as struggling for the competence of being the ultimate source of authority, whereas the most recent ones show an “ongoing conversation” through mutual reception of the respective decisions. This study offers a comparative view between the musical and the legal fields, trying to highlight specific analogies which connect them together.
