Composers quotes

The artist’s soul

There is, behind the soul and the whole life of the artist, perhaps a suffering soul … The moment one day will come in which perhaps yourself – if you possess a soul as I wish to believe – you will be able to see through feeling without any explanation.

– Dimitri Mitropoulos to Leonard Bernstein
