Absolute programme music

In this article I argue that the idea of "absolute music" – as the Hanslickian conception of "pure" music came, ironically, to be known – formed the centrepiece of a listening culture that still persists into our own time. In this sense, Hanslick's polemic against "programme music" can itself be understood as a meta-programme for listening to music for much of the twentieth century.
