Recently, the role that music plays in people’s life has aroused heated discussion. From my perspective, although I agree that music can strike a chord with listeners from various cultural backgrounds, defining it as a “universal language” is still an overestimate.
【中心句】Several reasons make music can be appreciated by people of different cultures and ages. 【分论点】On the one hand, understanding a melody does not necessarily involve interpretation. 【对比】Compared with literature, language is not a compulsory component of music, meaning that many emotions,【非谓语】【举例】such as joy, sorrow, love and anger, can be reflected just in the tune of a song. 【因果】This is the reason why there is barely any obstacle to enjoying music for the majority of people.【定语从句】【分论点】On the other hand, people may always respond strongly to the aesthetic of a piece of music no matter when it was created.【条件状语从句】【举例】Taking the Symphony No. 5 which was written by Beethoven hundreds of years ago as an example, it is still regarded as a masterpiece by music lovers all over the world, claiming that they are inspired by the motif of the symphony.【非谓语】
【中心句】However, it has to be admitted that【形式主语】 music is not the most preferable way when it comes to conveying information. 【因果】There is a lack of uniformity and precision in music, leading to a fact that sometimes it is really too abstract for people,【非谓语+同位语从句】 those who show little interest in music or have little empathy in particular,【定语从句+插入语】 to understand. 【举例+对比】For instance, the fairy tale version of Swan Lake is far easier to understand than piano music version for most people. 【因果】Therefore, the use of the phrase “universal language” should be reconsidered.
In conclusion, the claim made here is that【表语从句】 although music, as a form of art and a part of cultural heritage, can be a bridge between individuals from different cultural backgrounds, calling it “universal language” would smack of exaggeration.
