New Essays on Musical Understanding Summary


New Essays on Musical Understanding by Peter Kivy (Professor of Philosophy, Rutgers University, New Jersey)

Peter Kivy presents a selection of his new and recent writings on the philosophy of music, a subject to which he has for many years been one of the most eminent contributors. In his distinctively elegant and informal style, Kivy explores such topics as musicology and its history, the nature of musical works, and the role of emotion in music, in a way that will attract the interest of philosophical and musical readers alike. Most of the essays are published here for the first time, all of them are accessible and self-standing, and so there is much here to delight both followers of Kivy's work and those who are new to it.
