Perhaps -- though it may also be that human language is an abstraction of music!
Nietzsche wished he had "sung" _Zarathustra_. Some 20th century composers wished they had written novels (or political tractates). Nietzsche was smarter, I think.
The question ultimately requires determining how much language refers outside of itself. Tricky question, to be sure, and not just for posties (people who refer to their beliefs as "post-modern," "post-structuralist," etc. -- also a kind of breakfast cereal with a very, very high glycemic index).
