Radically departing from 19th-century Formalist aesthetics, Hatten argues that expressive meaning is not extra musical but fundamental to the reconstruction of compositional practice and stylistic understanding, even for the absolute works of Beethoven. "Hatten's interpretations are at times surprisingly poetic in their expression. . . . His work yields novel insights. . . ." --The Semiotic Review of Books . . . recommended warmly to theorists and others interested in music, semiotics, and aesthetics. Choice
