as an Expert
The Magic Veil
objective age no longer concedes its great minds this kind of "heroism", and
in diligent eagerness the simple inquisitive mind of the scientist attempts
to convey an exact picture of reality wherever he finds it.
Naturally, this sensible purposeful attitude of the analytical thinkers of our time especially of the qualified ones is also found in the musical creators of the present.
Thus, today the time has come where our critical contemporary minds, through profound, systematic scientifically-oriented research verify the mechanism of inner creativity.
This also includes the simple, objective attitude, by which the composer examines the components which determine his inner creative process, and quantifies their respective share in producing the musical work.
And the interpreter, too, will be identified simply as an expert, and his platform the raised stage will be brought directly into the audience.
At this point therefore, we want to raise the magic veil of music and, through simple reflection, place the inner secret of the magic power of music into the light of systematic, scientific verification.
