Poetry and music have always been artistic expressions that intertwine since ancient times, using similar techniques to be held formally. In contemporary times, the art of music has created a romantic theory of music, mirrors the evolution of the romantic movement in its essential points, because the words are insufficient, they could not tell the ineffable, but only suggest it approximately.
