ABSTRACT. The main objective of this paper is to explore and describe the relationship between dreams and music, the merging of feeling and reflection in the experience of music, and classical music’s capacity to unfold a complex discursive whole. In the present paper, I focus on the sheer beauty of music, the evocative power of music, passive listening, the collective excitement and bonding of music, the coercive power of music, and the dynamic power of rhythm. pp. 14–21
