William Bolcom

We may regard the workings of [Bach’s] music as secondary to its spiritual impact on us. But Bach didn’t; he clearly loved and needed the disciplines of the past to make his designs…“Art is what is inevitable,” the writer William Saroyan once said to me, and I have yet to find a better definition of it.

William Bolcom, “The End of the Mannerist Century”
