Mr. Girotto comments: Innocence and music must be interpreted here
in a different light from usual. Innocence should be understood as
the condition in which youth is spent, not yet compromised by
experiences acquired when we succumb to deceptive appearances.
Instead, music should be understood, in accordance with the
teachings passed down to us by the symbolist tradition, as the
harmonious whole which governs man and his relations with the
world. It supposes a unanimity of body and soul, a harmony of the
faculties of the soul and the elements which constitute the body,
much more easily found in still innocent youth than in old age,
despite its maturity.
