  1. There is definitely a special quality to music that makes it different from all other art forms. To Schopenhauer, music was the purest form of art because it allowed the artist to express himself directly to the listener. Other art forms, such as painting, writing or sculpting, require symbols to represent higher concepts. Symbols that can be easily misinterpreted. Since music is inherently abstract, it is free from this inherent limitation present in most other art.

    I think this is where most of music’s power lies. No other art form is better at expressing the transcendent parts of the world.
