Does music have no meaning? is it not fine art? Kant seems to believe that music is nothing more than surface beauty. I may be wrong but I believe it was said that poetry is a form of fine art. For music that has vocals, it is pretty much just poetry accompanied with a melody and instrumental reinforcement. How can adding instrumental music to poetry disqualify it from being fine art? secondly, many solo works in instrumental music seem to me to speak a language all its own. Although without words, there is still a tone and theme that come across to the audience. I personally believe music in all forms is a fine art for this reason, let me know what you guys think!
