• Why music affects us

    19th of December 2013 · tags:

    PhD student Niels Christian Hansen has just published an article in the anthology "Histories and Narratives of Music Analysis", published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. The article is about how to analyze a piece of music by using music psychology theories about which mechanisms that cause music to affect us emotionally.

    Specifically, Niels Christian Hansen analyzed Pendereckis "Threnody til Victims of Hiroshima" and the beginning of the prelude to 3rd act from Wagner's "Tristan und Isolde" and Chopin's "Scherzo No. 2".
