Quote of the Day

To regard analogy as an aid to the invention of theories is as absurd as to regard melody as an aid to the composition of sonatas. If the satisfaction of the laws of harmony and the formal principles of development were all that were required of music, we could all be great composers; it is the absence of the melodic sense which prevents us all attaining musical eminence by the simple process of purchasing a textbook.
