“Music, of course, is an art that occurs through time.” — Seiji Ozawa

(1) Au Plat d’Etain

(2) Quotes from Absolutely On Music by Haruki Murakami:

“In the Boston version of the Fantastique we heard before, you’re constantly adjusting every little detail: the tempo changes from one part to the next, the color of the sound changes. It’s marvelous, and though I wouldn’t call it ornate, it’s like looking at a moving miniature.”

“By ‘simple’ I mean something like the musicality of a folk song, something that everyone can hum. Lately, I’ve come to feel that as long as you capture that quality with truly superior technique and tone color and get the feeling into it, it’s probably going to go well.”
