The symposium about ‘music and emotion’ aimed at carefully examining the connection between music and emotion as seen by different scientific disciplines. This relation has always widely been accepted without sufficient research and therefore should be stimulating for a multi-perspective discourse. Experts from different musical disciplines (music education, musicology, music psychology, philosophy) focussed on the subject in specific fields and from different points of view. The symposium revealed a lively interdisciplinary exchange, which helped to find out the fundamental relations between music and emotion and opened the way for further virulent research.
