Vladimir Janklevitch and "Musicological Philosophy"

This intriguing, often debated French/Russian philosopher, who (someway) hated Erik Satie and his musical tricks, extensively wrote about the most enigmatic and ineffable features of music and its ability to say/not-say/express, but only hinting something... to suggest a mood, a landscape... also the smell and the feeling of a place.

Maybe worthwhile further investigation as only a philosopher - sometimes - owns the skill to properly describe the ineffable.
