“Although music is not a belief system, I think that its importance and its appeal also depend upon being a way of ordering human experience. Great music both arouses our emotions and also provides a framework within which our passions ‘enjoy themselves,’ as Nietzsche put it. Music exalts life, enhances life and gives it meaning. Great music outlives the individual who created it. It is both personal and beyond the personal. For those who love it, it remains a fixed point of reference in an unpredictable world. Music is a source of reconciliation, exhilaration and hope which never fails.”
