Semiotics of Classical Music
How Mozart, Brahms and Wagner Talk to UseBook - 2012
Music intrudes to our most intimate subjectivity, thus making it a privileged field to which so-called ""existential semiotics"", a new theory and philosophy developed by the author himself, may be applied. Using new semiotic methods and analyses as the fulcrum of its approaches, the volume aims to clarify why great classical composers from Mozart and Beethoven to Brahms and Wagner fascinate music listeners and lovers from all cultures of the world.
