“The trouble with music appreciation in general is that people are taught to have too much respect for music; they should be taught to love it instead.” Igor Stravinsky. “Subject: Music”, New York Times Magazine, 9/27/64
“To listen is an effort, and just hear is no merit. A duck hears also.” Igor Stravinsky.
