Summary/Abstract: This contribution to the discussion on truth in music shows two ways of thinking most often chosen by representatives of the contemporary English-speaking world’s analytic philosophy. The first way assumes seeking truth or falsehood in the actual musical work and its structures, while the other is related to truth in experiencing music, and thus to the sincerity, authenticity of a performance (and especially performers’ faithfulness to the score and to themselves). The text concludes with a literary example of the debate on truth in music. For aestheticists, it can be a source of reflection on metacritical issues of music performance, and for critics – encouragement to verify their own interpretative strategies.
