Within the idealist aesthetic, the power of any given artwork lies in its ability to reﬂect a higher ideal and in the beholder’s ability to perceive that ideal. Idealism did not deny the sensuous power of music. To the contrary: the aesthetics of idealism fostered some of the most soaring descriptions of instrumental music ever written. The object of description, however, had shifted from music’s effect to music’s essence or, more speciﬁcally, to the perception of an ideal realm reﬂected in that music.
