the inner hidden deeper secret meaning

double quote

of the week:

"What is music? This question occupied my mind for hours last night  before I fell asleep. The very existence of music is wonderful, I might even say miraculous. Its domain is between thought and phenomena. Like a twilight mediator, it hovers between spirit and matter, related to both, yet differing from each. It is spirit, but it is spirit subject to the measurement of time. It is matter, but it is matter that can dispense with space."

Heinrich Heine

'Music, of all the arts, stands in a special region, unlit by any star but its own, and utterly without meaning ... except its own.’

Leonard Bernstein
