Proust did not play a musical instrument. Yet music permeates his writing at all levels. In Search of Lost Time is brimming with references to composers, comparisons with music and passages with musical scenes, such as his memorable description of the Sonata composed by the imaginary Vinteuil. It has even been suggested that there is an underlying musical structure in his novel, which also endorses the technique of the leitmotif and the typically Wagnerian monumental conception. For Proust it was clear that memory and time, the two great themes of his extraordinary novel, could only be recovered through music, the most temporal art of all.
