"art, and, above all, music, has a fundamental function, which is to catalyze the sublimation that it can bring about through all means of expression. it must aim through fixations which are landmarks, to draw [one] towards a total exaltation in which the individual mingles, losing his consciousness in a truth immediate, rare, enormous, and perfect. if a work of art succeeds in this undertaking even for a single moment, it attains its goal."
