Semiotics of Classical Music: How Mozart, Brahms and Wagner Talk to Us

Front Cover
de Gruyter, 2012 - 493 pages
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.
