die Sprache
aufhört, fängt die Musik an.
E. T. A. Hoffmann (1776-1822)

Ohne Musik wäre das ganze Leben nur ein Irrtum.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

"La musique exprime ce qui ne peut être dit et sur quoi il
est impossible de rester silencieux."
Victor Hugo (1802-1885)

The object of art is to stir the most divine and remote of the chords
which make music in our soul.
Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

... for music is the art in which form and matter are always
one, the art whosesubject cannot be separated from the method
of its expression, the art which most completely realises the artistic
ideal, and is the condition to which all the other arts are constantly aspiring.
Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
