ÆSTHETICS OF MUSIC.

SECOND YEAR.

Professor Marshall-Hall.

FOR PASS AND HONOUR CANDIDATES.

1. Give instances shewing that sensations and emotions,

pleasurable and painful, are muscular stimuli. 2. “Mental excitement of all kinds ends in excitement

of the muscles.” Shew how the origin of music lies in this fact, and that vocal sounds correspond

to states of feeling. 3. “To become conscious of the feeling which another

is experiencing, is to have that feeling awakened in our own consciousness." Comment on this

statement with regard to its relation to music. 4. Schopenhauer says that music depicts to the

minutest detail the efforts of the intellectuallyenlightened “Will.” Compare this utterance with that of Herbert Spencer :-“This same passionate enthusiastic temperament ... leads the musical composer to express the feelings possessed by others as well as himself ... also to give musical utterance to feelings which they either do not experience, or experience but in slight degrees. In virtue of this general susceptibility which distinguishes him, he regards with emotion events, conduct, scenes, character, which produce on most men no appreciable effect." Explain shortly Schopenhauer's theory of the " Will," and its connection with the art of music.

Additional for Honours. 5. Explain briefly Schopenhauer's view of the "Platonic

idea as the object of Art”; and his reasons for considering the effect of music more direct than that of other arts.
