Abstract: This book develops psychoanalytic music criticism in the field of postmodern music analysis. It offers psychoanalytic listenings of various musics; from a Romantic symphony to alternative country music, from piano miniatures to TV-opera. The musical rhetoric of melancholy, uncanny, acoustic mirroring, alienation and other subjectivity mechanisms are tracked in the music of Chopin (Nocturne C minor Op. 48), k.d. lang (Constant Craving, Save me), Nordgren (Alex), Schubert (Der Lindenbaum), Sibelius (Kyllikki), and Tchaikovsky (Symphony No. 6, Pathétique). The book also outlines the history and current state of psychoanalytic music analysis and theorizes music as a site of subjectivity.
