  Symphonic Music
Peter Huebner comments on his Symphonic Creation                       page 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
     
 
Contrary to the preconceptions of a large portion of the world of experts, the works of our great classical composers – in so far as they belong to the area of absolute music – are in no way music which is free of human evolution and which might also be conducted for its own sake, rather here we have before us an ideal language with which to emotionally and rationally describe and present the area of life of inner human strengths.

As such, by its nature, this music belongs in the area of philosophy or the art of living – where it then also connects up with religious music.

This kind of absolute music, which has humanity as its sole theme, finds its highest expression in the symphony, and here particularly with Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven who, it is known, did not feel themselves primarily under obligation to the music, but to the truth and, as such, saw music as the best means known to them of expressing the truth at a level of feeling and understanding.
 
     
 
“Only the composer
who was capable
of using them
to have an effect
on man's soul,
truly penetrated the
secrets of harmony.”


           E.T.A. Hoffmann
 
And both of these human strengths, feeling, and understanding are, then, the cornerstones of the symphonic creation of our great composers for their musical evolution of humanity. At the same time, within the framework of the symphony, particularly in the sonata movement form, feeling and understanding are presented and activated in diverse ways.
     
So the first movement of the classical symphony, its main movement, consists of two themes – a male and a female theme –-, which characterise the inner human strengths, feeling and understan- ding, and educate the listener, to deal playfully with these human strengths of his.
  “All music
is really inner music
and must become
inner music again.”


                G. Hauptmann
 
 
 
 
 
Whilst universities, schools and official educational establishments devote themselves to the learning of external skills, the great classical composers saw it as their sacred duty to educate people in the use of their inner skills – to introduce man to his inner-human strengths, educate him in the differentiation of his inner human strengths and train him in the balanced and successful use of his inner skills.
