Sample text

Den klassiske musikks ytringsform betyr: viten om det tragiske i menneskelivet, bejaelse av menneskets skjebne, tapperhet, munterhet 1 Det være seg en grasiøs menuett av Handel eller Couperin, det uendelig sarte uttrykk for sublimert sanselighet hos mange italienere eller hos Mozart, eller den stillferdige, fattede dødsbevissthet hos Bach — der er alltid et «tross alt», et mot til døden, et adelskap og et tonefall av overjordisk latter, av udødelig munterhet. » Disse ord ble nedtegnet av en av Knechts elever.

Den som mottar kallelsen, tar dermed imot ikke bare en gave og en ordre, han påtar seg også en skyld, likesom soldaten som blir hentet ut av rekkene og forfremmet til offiser også gjør seg iher verdig til forfremmelsen i samme grad som han betaler den med en følelse av skyld og dårlig samvittighet overfor sine kamerater. I mellomtiden hadde Knecht det privilegium å gjennomleve denne utvikling i fullkommen uforstyrrethet og uskyld: da han til slutt fra lærerrådet fikk beskjed om sin utmerkelse og om at han i løpet av kort tid ville bli opptatt i eliteskolen, var han et øyeblikk fullstendig overrasket, selv om han allerede i neste øyeblikk var klar over at dette var noe han forlengst hadde visst og ventet.

Mange år senere fortalte Knecht sine elever at da han kom ut av huset, så han at byen og verden var meget mer forvandlet og fortrollet enn hva den ville ha vært om den var blitt smykket med flagg og kranser, girlander og fyrverkerier. Han hadde opplevet kallelsens høye presedens, som man meget vel kan kalle et sakrament: den ideale verden som hans unge sinn inntil da bare hadde hørt om, og som han bare delvis kjente gjennom sine glødende drømmer, lå nå synliggjort og åpen foran ham. Denne verden eksisterte ikke bare et eller annet sted i det fjerne, i fortiden eller fremtiden, nei, den var her og nå og var aktiv, den strålte ut, den sendte ut budbringere, apostler, sendebud, menn, slik som denne gamle magister, som for øvrig — efter hva Josef senere kom til å tenke på — egentlig slett ikke var så gammel allikevel.
