Emotion and meaning in music by Leonard B Meyer( Book )

108 editions published between 1954 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Après une longue période où la musique était considérée comme un pur jeu de formes, une attention renouvelée se manifeste aujourd'hui pour le contenu émotif et sémantique de la musique. Certes, les mélomanes y étaient toujours restés sensibles, mais le discours sur la musique s'était tenu éloigné de cette dimension essentielle de la musique. L'auteur démontre comment ce que nous ressentons à l'écoute d'une musique résulte d'une interaction entre ce que nous avons intégré des normes stylistiques dominant dans la musique de notre culture et les attentes que ce style crée au fur et à mesure que nous écoutons une oeuvre. Il examine également les processus par lesquels une oeuvre déclenche dans notre cerveau des images mentales, des connotations affectives et des états émotionnels. (4e de couv.)

Style and music : theory, history, and ideology by Leonard B Meyer( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonard Meyer proposes a theory of style and style change that relates the choices made by composers to the constraints of psychology, cultural context, and musical traditions. He explores why, out of the abundance of compositional possibilities, composers choose to replicate some patterns and neglect others. Meyer devotes the latter part of his book to a sketch-history of nineteenth-century music. He shows explicitly how the beliefs and attitudes of Romanticism influenced the choices of composers from Beethoven to Mahler and into our own time. -- Site web de l'éditeur
