On initial reflection, I realized that I was not sure what the word ‘aesthetics’ actually meant. After looking it up in the dictionary1, I am even less sure. I find two definitions:
A branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of the beautiful and with judgments concerning beauty.
The description and explanation of artistic phenomena and aesthetic experience by means of other sciences.
- Aesthetic Experience
- Music Performance
- Musical Structure
- Symphony Orchestra
- Instrumental Music
