Commentary on Lahdelma and Eerola

Michael Spitzer

Abstract


This commentary offers a critique of the idea that nostalgia can be conveyed by a single chord – a major 7th. The commentary questions the constancy of emotion conveyed by a single chord in its different manifestations, and the extent to which it can afford perception of a complex emotion such as nostalgia.
