The word in the title, "music" recalls the concrete music, heard, written, composed by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. But it refers too to the idea of music he elaborated within his thought on societies, languages, and on man. Concrete music and philosophical conception interrelate each other with bonds and nodes. Rousseau felt himself torn between happy reveries in the loneliness and virtuous social obligations to think and to write. Likewise his music was as well the simple one that turns to sensibility, as the language of both art and nature that reflects the thinking unity, and, for that, is able to tell the truth. While the first is common music, he considers the second more and more unattainable. And in his attempt to define the qualities of this second kind of music, he defines, with sharp and modern thoughts, those which will make music as the favoured object of romantic metaphisics and, beyond, those which the Expressionism will oppose to the logic of artistic materials.
