The best way to analyse and comment on a musical work is to write another one using materials from the original work: a creative exploration of a composition is at the same time an analysis, a commentary and an extension of the original.
The most profitable commentary on a symphony or an opera has always been another symphony or another opera. They are a series of specific commentaries which include, almost intact, the object and subject of the commentary. Why this insistence on elaborating and transforming again the same material?
