  • Mieux vaut avoir l'âge de ses artères que l'âge de César Franck. (Erik Satie)
  • Listening to the Fifth Symphony of Ralph Vaughan Williams is like staring at a cow for forty-five minutes. (Aaron Copland)
  • Why is it that whenever I hear a piece of music I don't like, it's always by Villa-Lobos? (Igor Stravinsky)
