Reviews

'Combining philosophy, psychology, and music history, Why Music Moves Us is a remarkable multidisciplinary achievement. Bicknell offers a fresh take on the emotional power of music by exploring a neglected but vital element of the Romantic aesthetic: the musical sublime'

- Theodore Gracyk, author of Rhythm and Noise and Listening to Popular Music

'For Bicknell, who fully understands music's ability to arouse and represent emotions, music is of moral benefit in educating them' - Times Literary Supplement

'...a more collaborative approach to understanding music...' British Journal of Asthetics
