"Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy, is the wine of a new procreation, and I am Bacchus [Bacchus] squeezing this glorious wine for men and makes you drink it with spirit.
"Music is an incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprises mankind but which mankind can not understand ..."
"I am Bacchus incarnate, to give to mankind the wine [of Music] to strangle [the punishment of] your pain ... [Each person] to glimpse the secret of my music is released on misery round the world . "
(Ludwig van Beethoven).
