Emotion and Meaning in Music (1956)
"Altogether it is a book that should be required reading for any student of music, be he composer, performer, or theorist. It clears the air of many confused notions . . . and lays the groundwork for exhaustive study of the basic problem of music theory and aesthetics, the relationship between pattern and meaning."--David Kraehenbuehl, Journal of Music Theory "This is the best study of its kind to have come to the attention of this reviewer."--Jules Wolffers, The Christian Science Monitor "It is not too much to say that his approach provides a basis for the meaningful discussion of emotion and meaning in all art."--David P. McAllester, American Anthropologist "A book which should be read by all who want deeper insights into music listening, performing, and composing."--Marcus G. Raskin, Chicago Review
