Front Cover
University Press of America, 2002 - Music - 629 pages
Music, as any fine art, expresses human values, not merely musical values. In More than Meets the Ear, Gilbert R. Fischer shows what the ways are, through the work of particular composers in particular pieces, and how theoretical dogmas prevent meaningful expression.
