Eduard Hanslick quotes
" An art aims, above all, at producing something beautiful which affects not our feelings but the organ of pure contemplation, our imagination. "

Eduard Hanslick
" Grant that the true organ with which the beautiful is apprehended is the imagination, and it follows that all arts are likely to affect the feelings indirectly. "

Eduard Hanslick
" Music has no subject beyond the combinations of notes we hear, for music speaks not only by means of sounds, it speaks nothing but sound. "

Eduard Hanslick
" On the one hand it is said that the aim and object of music is to excite emotions, i.e., pleasurable emotions; on the other hand, the emotions are said to be the subject matter which musical works are intended to illustrate. Both propositions are alike in this, that one is as false as the other. "

Eduard Hanslick

Eduard Hanslick
" The course hitherto pursued in musical aesthetics has nearly always been hampered by the false assumption that the object was not so much to inquire into what is beautiful in music as to describe the feelings which music awakens. "
