The article discusses the role of musical reasons in understanding the problem of identification of conditions for musical works raised in "Languages of Art," by Nelson Goodman. Although the fundamental question has been the identity conditions of a musical work, the author explains that in practice, philosophers have tried to discover the conditions that a sound-event or performance must satisfy to be considered as an instance of such-and-such a work.
