Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the work. The article is devoted to the problems of determination of dimension of existence of music in philosophical and aesthetic views on art. The main theme of research is consideration of Oswald Spengler musical intentions in relation to the ethos of culture. The research deals with his main views of music and draws parallel with the concept of ethos of culture. There are central notions of Spengler’s philosophy on the implementation of culture styles in music and the presence of faustian and apolonian in art. Methodologу of the reseаrсh consists of application of сompаrаtіve аnd hіstorісаl-logісаl methods as well as contextual and systematic methods. The above methodological approach allows to reveal and to analyze artistic phenomena as a part of cultural process. In addition, we used in our research cultural method. This approach allows us to consider all parts and cultural layers in their relationship. Scientific novelty lies in expanding notions of ethos of music as a manifestation of a dialogue between culture and music, as well as classification of definite views of Oswald Spengler on music art in the context of development of cultures and civilizations. The important factor in today's integrative art process is an emphasis on the identifying by philosopher "inner form speech" of art, which actually refers to the ethos as the spirit of culture. Conclusions. The appeals to music in Spengler’s heritage is based on his affirmation about the spirit of music as the spirit of era. This in its turn goes to the ethos of music as the organic embodiment of the spirit of culture. In this context, ornamental ethos acts as a set of basic intentions of the current era and universal logical system that unites us with many cultures
