This chapter examines the aesthetic pleasure that became linked to serious art music. It focuses on charm and pleasure, which led to a revival of interest in feminine values and new debates over what was distinctive in French music. It discusses the relationship between music and its listeners that was based in aural pleasure and emotional and imaginative stimulation, along with an improved understanding of the contribution of music to the public interest.

Keywords:   aesthetic pleasure, art music, charm, feminine values, French music, aural pleasure, imaginative stimulation, emotional stimulation, public interest
