In 1919, Viennese neurologist Otto Marburg (1874–1948) reported the case of a patient with motor aphasia and preserved singing ability. He took the opportunity to discourse on the hemispheric lateralization of the functions of language and music, and also on the interaction of the two cerebral hemispheres in musical expression. “Zur Frage der Amusie” (1919) was published in Arbeiten aus dem Neurologischen Institute an der Wiener Universität, 22, 106-112. In tribute to Marburg’s neurological legacy and as an attempt to disseminate his neuroscientific ideas, an English translation of that essay is here presented by Dimitra Koniari, MA and Lazaros C. Triarhou, MD, PhD of the University of Macedonia, Greece.
