Editorial Reviews


"Accessible musings by some of the most sophisticated American aestheticians of music."--Philadelphia Inquirer

"The philosophy of music aims to intersect our natural reflections on musical experience and practice with the general preoccupations of philosophy, and so to distil universal aspects of music. When this is done well, the philosophy of music shares and extraphilosophical value of good music criticism: it enhances our sense of the contours of musical experience and pays homage to the intensely particular character of musical works. A number of the papers in Michael Krausz's collection have this virtue."--The Performances
