Some narrative interpreters of absolute music canon — as Jenefer Robinson or Edward T. Cone — tend to perceive it as the symbolic utterance of a virtual musical character. This character, called musical persona, is supposed to have the ability to sustain listener’s interest as characters in literary fi ction do. The explanation for the fact that the piece of music is „powerfully moving” is that it depicts a „musical persona’s psychological drama”. In my paper I want to concentrate on Jenefer Robinson’s infl uential book Deeper than Reason and her conception of musical persona which seems to be highly controversial.
