According to Joseph Kerman, "Much ingenuity has been expended in discovering how individual works have passed through various stages to their final state, and explaining why; and by extension, to analyzing how their composers have worked as a matter of routine. By a further extension, one could go on to study musical creativity in general, at least in theory." He adds that the latter project "has not been seriously attempted since the days of Max Graf and Frederick Dorian in the 1940s." Joseph Kerman, Sketch Studies," in Musicology in the 1980s, ed. D. Kern Holoman and Claude V. Palisca ( New York: Da Capo Press, 1982), 58.

According to Felix Salzer: "There is, in a sense, no creative process as such, for the minds of different composers must have worked differently. Every composer probably had his own way of mentally 'thinking it out'; that process surely worked in different ways even within the output of a single composer." Felix Salzer, "Review: Robert Marshall, The Compositional Process of J. S. Bach", Journal of Music Theory 16 ( 1972): 232. This notion is common in aesthetics, see Suresh Raval, Metacriticism ( Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1981), 39.

To quote Richard Kramer: "The creative act (the point needs restressing) is mysterious. If that puts it too romantically, it is an act that is so complex, motivated by so many impulses -- as remote and impersonal as the entire web of knowable history, and as remote and intensely personal as the sum of one man's experience -- that the material evidence (records of the act) are little more than occasional memos of a deeper, continual process." Richard Kramer, The Sketches for Beethoven's Violin Sonatas, Opus 30: History, Transcription, Analysis ( Ph.D. diss., Princeton University, 1973), 516-17; cited in Douglas Johnson, "Beethoven Scholars and Beethoven Sketches", Nineteenth-Century Music 2 ( 1978): 15.

More generally, Karl Popper has described the general role of problem solving in the acquisition of knowledge; see his Objective Knowledge: An Evolutionary Approach ( Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1972).
