One of the small, but interesting, books by Aristotle is called Questions, consisting only of questions but with no answers provided by Aristotle. In this spirit, I shall begin a series of questions about music and like Aristotle I shall leave to the reader the answers.
Question Nr. 1
In responding to a question about the value of the new metronome, Beethoven replied, “It is valuable, but only for the first couple of measures, for after that Feeling has its own Tempo.”
Was Feeling discussed in your music education?
