Quote from: relm1 on September 24, 2022, 06:14:53 AMCan you define "enlightenment" in how you are using it? We know from the extant writings that Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, etc., also had to spend a considerable amount of their mental energy on mundane topics like getting paid, promotions, rehearsal issues, housekeeping topics too. There is a romanticized idea that composers just created.

Quote from: nakulanb on September 23, 2022, 07:49:11 PMI feel to have true love, which my favorite artists know about, you must be irrational in your actions with the loved one.I tend to lean towards the Romantics and Impressionists these days and feel Baroque and Classical were more emotionally shallow.

Quote from: Lisztianwagner on September 24, 2022, 03:09:12 PMYou know, your last sentence made me think fleetingly of Schopenhauer in The World as Will and Representation, about music being able to penetrate immediately the deepest essence of the world, the Will: he distinguished between "imitative" music, which for him was created by intellect and mathematical methods, but that so could express the Will only in a mediated way, and music composed without the mediation of reason, which on the contrary had no limits in expressing the Will, being its direct objectification.
