ABSTRACT. Wittgenstein tends to define a work of music in terms of an abstract sound pattern which is antecedent to its composition by any particular composer. Wittgenstein attempts to explain and justify the widespread descriptions of music in terms usually used to characterize human beings and he analyses the expressiveness of music as a compound of elements of convention and contour (music is unequivocally a language of the emotions).
