How might I respond? I could respond in kind, pointing to aspects of the playing that I took to express sensitivity to line and structure; or I could complain that what you call colorist playing I think of as romantic sweep. Substantive argument—and not simply rhetorical head butting—is possible. And in such debate, the stakes could be inordinately high; we could be arguing over how best to interpret the achievement of a particular composer, and therefore what the authority of a certain type of musical structure comes to.

Particularization is a habit of the simple mind. The most vivid example of this tendency is also one of the earliest: Plato modeled the entire sensible world as ontologically transient, unreliable, and deceptive, a mere instance of immutable forms residing elsewhere. For Plato the entire sensible world was shallow. The counter notion, namely that depth is not the only place to look for knowledge, is of somewhat recent vintage but widely embraced by those with a semiological bent. One of the most adamant critics of the methodological shovel, and one of the most lucid advocates of a mode of inquiry that does not involve digging, was the anthropologist Clifford Geertz.

So works of art, things designed in the mastering and including of subjectivity in their construction of an empirical whole, are aligning how things are with how they are meant to strike one, how we feel in knowing them with what we know in feeling them. Because feeling here is neither simply or immediately causally triggered, like the taste of vanilla, nor mediated by a concept, like the empirical features of the object (“This is red”), but a constructed and orderly feature of the object that calls for a sensuous response of a certain kind, then there is the gap, between pattern and agreement, that permits the retreat into mere preference.
