If it's there it doesn't disappear just because you've gotten to know
the the thing a little better. There's
no kind of analysis that can ever exhaust art, because art is a
reflection of man, whom we're not capable
of exhausting, to paraphrase Borges. But on the other hand there's every
reason
to wish to know more about music than we really do at present from any
angle you can think
of.
