Kandinsky & Schoenberg

It was Kandinsky's opinion that what he was doing in visual art was more or less analogous with what Schoenberg and Scriabin etc were doing in music. In which case why is it so delightful to look on a Kandinsky painting and so difficult to listen to a Schoenberg opus? To the dim layman such as myself they seem very far apart. Comments please.
