of Conveying Truth in Music
In his musical work the composer pursues a clearly defined intention: step by step he wants to make his listener familiar with the liberating world of self-awareness, and he achieves it by directing the musical flow in such a way that starting from the musical sound-space his listener is taken in steps through the motif and sequence-spaces into the infinite space of the harmony.
As the listener reaches this unlimited musical space of the harmony, he arrives simultaneously at himself and locates the dynamic musical fullness of his own self-awareness.
So, the purpose of the classical musical work lies in glorifying self-awareness the natural creative realm of the composer; and the intent of the musical creator lies in introducing the listener to the experience of pure self-awareness. To achieve this he employs the means of music.
the musical creator pursues this goal.
He guides the listener through the beauty of the world and brings him closer to that harmony by which the world is organized from its origin.
This intention is quite understandable particularly at a time when, as a result of human misbehaviour, the environment appears hostile here and there, and the reality of life, originally harmoniously designed, appears distorted to those who do not understand the reasonably organized relationship between cause and effect.
to this distorted picture of nature, which actually functions fully in support
of life, man quarrels with his fate.
And either he stands against nature, or he thinks he should and could outwit this almighty force by means of technical devices so-called "achievements."
The classical composer educates the music listener as to the senselessness of such illusion on which, after all, the entire technical civilization with all its human incompetence is based and shows him practical means and passable ways of placing himself and his action into harmony with nature almighty.
this educational process starts from the unfoldment of the motif, continues
into the sequence-space, and finds its conclusion in the space of the harmony.
On the level of the harmony the listener is permeated by the values of the absolute sound-substance, and he experiences his personal life totally in tune with the omnipotent laws of nature; indeed, he even realizes that in his creative act which results logically from the musical process of cognition he is the legitimate ruler over nature.
And from this new standpoint within his self-knowledge, he even regards nature as his intimate companion on his way, who is very naturally inclined towards his desires and fulfils them.
