Excerpt from Beethoven's Symphonies Critically Discussed

While admitting that the author has at times been carried away by his exuberant fancy, it is impossible to deny that he possesses in a very high degree those powers Of analysis without which it is impossible to do justice to, or even approximately to understand, Beethoven. Music is verily the language Of the soul - higher, finer, more delicate in its methods, and more ethereal in its results, than anythirig to which the tongue can give utterance, expressing what speech cannot speak, and affecting, as no mere talking can, the invisible player who manipu lates the keyboard of the human intellect, and whom we call 17713 Saul. Music is truly Of such a nature, and appeals so powerfully and mysteriously to that soul, that the words Of Jean Paul seem quite justified.
