Quote from a lecture by Rudolf Steiner at Hamburg, November 17, 1906 (GA 54)

If you could only observe, as a practicing occultist, the way in which a Wagner opera works on the different members of the human nature, it would convince you that it is especially music which is able to send its vibrations deep into the etheric body.
