Against emotion: Hanslick was right about music

British Journal of Aesthetics 44 (1):29-43 (2004)
Abstract
I argue that Hanslick was right to think that music should not be understood in terms of emotion. In particular, it is not essential to music to possess emotions, arouse emotions, express emotions, or represent emotions. All such theories are misguided.
