This collection of ten papers by eminent musicians and scholars of music attempts an understanding of the relationship between man and music, and points out that through music, man in his totality of being is truly comprehensible.

The significance of music and its experience is best understood through the medium itself rather than through verbal dialogues and discussions. But then, the influence and impact of music on man is so profound and so vital that time and again man pauses to reflect and analyze this infinitely rich and expressive art form. The ten papers in this volume by eminent musician and scholars of music are an attempt at such an understanding.
