One is hardly sensible of fatigue while he marches to music.

~~~~~~~

One man with a dream, at pleasure, Shall go forth and conquer a crown And three with a new song’s measure Can trample a kingdom down.

~~~~~~~

Only sick music makes money today.

~~~~~~~

Open my ears to music; let Me thrill spring’s first flutes and drums.- But never let me dare forget The bitter ballads of the slums.

~~~~~~~

Opera is when a guy gets stabbed in the back and, instead of bleeding, he sings.

~~~~~~~

Orpheus’ lute was strung with poets’ sinews; Whose golden touch could soften steel and stones; Make tigers tame and huge leviathans Forsake unsounded deeps to dance on sands.

~~~~~~~

Orpheus with his lute made trees, And the mountain tops that freeze, Bow themselves when he did sing. To his music plants and flowers Ever sprung, as sun and showers There had made a lasting spring. Every thing that heard him play, Even the billows of the sea, Hung their heads, and then lay by. In sweet music is such art, Killing care and grief of heart Fall asleep, or hearing die.

~~~~~~~

Our ‘prentice, Tom, may now refuse To wipe his scroundrel master’s shoes; For now he’s free to sing and play Over the hills and far away.

~~~~~~~

People were talking while I was playing, so I got up and left the stage. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m not really very patient with patrons rapping during the show. And the people were all nice and quiet when I cam back.

~~~~~~~

People weren’t buying as many records. My record company did not want me. I went through three record companies, went on tour at the wrong time. It destroyed me.

~~~~~~~

People whose sensibility is destroyed by music in trains, airports, lifts, cannot concentrate on a Beethoven Quartet.

~~~~~~~

Percussion music is revolution. Sound and rhythm have too long been submissive to the restrictions of nineteenth century music. Today we are fighting for their emancipation. Tomorrow, with electronic music in our ears, we will hear freedom. At the present stage of revolution, a healthy lawlessness is warranted. Experiment must necessarily be carried on by hitting anything-tin pans, rice bowls, iron pipes-anything we can lay our hands on. Not only hitting, but rubbing, scraping, making sound in every possible way…What we can’t do ourselves will be done by machines which we will invent.

~~~~~~~

Perhaps all music, even the newest, is not so much something discovered as something that re-emerges from where it lay buried in the memory, inaudible as a melody cut in a disc of flesh. A composer lets me hear a song that has always been shut up silent within me.

~~~~~~~

Philosophy is the highest music. Plato quotes

~~~~~~~

Play the music, not the instrument.

~~~~~~~

Play uppe, play uppe, O Boston bells! Ply all your changes, all your swells, Play uppe ‘The Brides of Enderby.’

~~~~~~~

Preposterous ass, that never read so far To know the cause why music was ordained! Was it not to refresh the mind of man After his studies or his usual pain?

~~~~~~~

Richard Wagner’s music is better than it sounds.

~~~~~~~

Rugged the breast that music cannot tame.

~~~~~~~

Seated one day at the organ, I was weary and ill at ease, And my fingers wandered idly Over the noisy keys. I do not know what I was playing, Or what I was dreaming then, But I struck one chord of music Like the sound of a great Amen.
