Greetings,

Something to start the week. While reading from PH's A Composer's World
this morning I discovered this passage:

"If there is anything remaining in this world that is on the one side
basically aristocratic and individualistic and on the other side as
brutal as the fights of wild animals, it is artistic creation. It is
aristocratic, because it is the privilege of a very restricted number of
people. If it could be democratized, it would lose its quality as an
art, become reduced to a craft, and end as an industry. In many branches
of our musical life we already have reached this lowest, industrial
phase, as we let musical democracy have its unbridled way."

Prophetic or just dyspeptic ? Comments welcome...

Best,

dp
