Why does music move us?
Tom Service explores how music can tug our heartstrings like nothing else. He asks how, from Mahler to Miley Cyrus, music inspires the most powerful emotions within us.
How can music make us cry?
Why does our favourite piece give us the shivers?
And why, when we're feeling down, do we enjoy nothing more than a good wallow in sad music?
Is it something in the music - or something in ourselves?
From Schubert to Stravinsky and Mahler to Miley Cyrus - Tom Service is joined by music psychology expert Dr Victoria Williamson to investigate how music can tug on our heartstrings like nothing else.
