Music is an outburst of the soulDelius
What is music to you? This is an interesting question and I wonder if the answer might be different from person to person.
Can you even define easily with words what it means to you?
I like the quote by Delius because to me, whether composing music or performing or playing it, music is “an outburst of the soul”. It allows us to express inner emotions and speaks what cannot be easily conveyed in words.
Which one of these quotes describes what music means to you?
What is Music? How do you define it? Music is a calm moonlit night, the rustle of leaves in Summer. Music is the far off peal of bells at dusk! Music comes straight from the heart and talks only to the heart: it is Love! Music is the Sister of Poetry and her Mother is sorrow!Rachmaninoff
Music is the moonlight in the gloomy night of lifeJean Paul Friedrich Richter
Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.Pablo Casals
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silentVictor Hugo
Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal formPlato
Music is the art which is most nigh to tears and memoryOscar Wilde
Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowableLeonard Bernstein
