Abstract:

"Kofi Agawu's Music as Discourse promises to quickly become a standard and definitive work in musical semiotics. Working at the nexus of musicology, ethnomusicology, and music philosophy and aesthetics, Agawu presents a synthetic and innovative approach to musical meaning which argues deftly for thinking of music as a discourse in itself, composed not only of sequences of gestures, phrases, or progressions but also of the very philosophical and linguistic props that enable the analytical formulations made about music as an object of study."--BOOK JACKET.
