    Off course you do, or at least some joy and meaning.Meaning may also give some kind of deep satisfaction.There is so much to say about these things but I prefer to listen to music instead of speaking about it.

    Maybe your definition of beauty differs from others. Do you believe, for example, that Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20, Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, Schubert's String Quintet, and Mahler's Symphony No. 5 are not beautiful?

    Do you perhaps mean that those only looking for beauty are somehow doing music a disservice?

    I'll counter with this. It is arrogant of me to think I could ever take part in stopping the music. Music IS creation, and Tolkien knew what I know. So did NIMROD. Music IS the universal language. Every kind of person from every walk of life, speaking every "Babbling" language, can come together and watch an opera and speak the SAME language, if only for a short amount of time. Does it make me happy that there is a man on this site who dislikes me very very much, and if I offered him the one thing he TRULY wants above all other things, and I was giving it to him for free.......he would say no on principal. This honestly makes me cry.

    Never to hear beauty in music? Just so-called reality or dissonance?... With all the ugliness in the world, there's no longer room for beauty?

    There are plenty of other composers who have filled the void of the discordant and dissonant, such as Ferneyhough, Xenakis, Birtwistle and others. There's hardly a dearth of it... In a world filled with talk of war, there's no longer any room for those who take a stand for peace?

    For some listeners, their exposure to beauty is a way of replenishing and renewing themeselves to experience relief from the everyday grind of the world; rather than being further exposed to its dissonances and disharmony without transcending it, though some may find that stimulating.
