It is a result of his passion & and his knowledge of the 2 subjects, acquired in Russia & Germany (where he lived at the time). In the-above painting, Circle is used as a symbol of a perfect form; contrasting with different shapes & colors.
"A form, even if completely abstract... has its own internal sound", he wrote.
Kandinsky's purpose was Formulation of the Abstract language; causing strong Emotions in the viewer, in many respects in the same way as it is done by Music.
