Bernard, what about discussing without becoming insulting? I actually
hear vanity in Liszts music as I hear sadness in Beethoven`s Moonlight
Sonata, jollity in some of Rossinis aria, hatred in Mozarts La vendetta-aria
and Verdis Iago-arias, grace in Botticelli`s String Quintet and so on.
(And by the way, I am a poor painter but I reommend Turner as someone
who actually could paint air.)
