The Inner Dimension of the Interpretation
Examining the Interpreter's Intentions
The integrated diversity of the sequences, melodies, and motifs enlivens within the listener the world of his inner cognition and a natural awareness of his own inner power: the profound feeling of free sovereignty over his inner potential of happiness.
The musician who, when musically structuring the sound-space, wants to express this inner lively world outwardly, will initially encounter difficulties, because something from inside cannot readily be transformed into something outside.
To master this task of expressing comprehensive human values through the interpretation requires great ideals and the awareness of a deep, conscious responsibility towards humanity.
Love of music is
essentially a quality of the listener. In the interpreter, in the music expert,
it is the love of mankind which must dominate if he wants to promote the good
in the world through music.
And when the musician fulfils this requirement, he will have the basic attitude needed to accomplish the laborious process of truthful conveyance of music unperturbed, and he will emerge from it fulfilled.
