The research is related to the analysis of concepts such as ethos, which is a stable state of music and the «volition to live» by Arthur Schopenhauer, considered according to world harmony. Ethos is seen as a stable state of music, appearing on the transcendent dimension of cultural creativity according to historical and paradigmatic changes of the World. The methodologу of the reseаrсh іs the use of сompаrаtіve аnd hіstorісаl-logісаl methods, contextual and systematic methods. The above methodological approach allows to reveal and to analyze artistic phenomenon like part of cultural process. Also we used in our research cultural method.

Ethos of music is interpreted as the embodiment of the micro and macro cosmos. Conclusions.
