Notes and Editorial Reviews

Absolute and non-absolute music can be separated from each other only up to a certain point; the search for unequivocal certainty here leads to confusion. I myself continually blend absolute and narrative music, and constantly have in the back of my mind concrete impressions of emotional states which are far from being absolutes. Music is a realistic art. - Maurice Kagel Absolute and non-absolute music can be separated from each other only up to a certain point; the search for unequivocal certainty here leads to confusion.
