Famous quotes containing the words classical music, music, contemporary and/or classical:

    André Previn (b. 1929)

    Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945)

    Culture is a sham if it is only a sort of Gothic front put on an iron building—like Tower Bridge—or a classical front put on a steel frame—like the Daily Telegraph building in Fleet Street. Culture, if it is to be a real thing and a holy thing, must be the product of what we actually do for a living—not something added, like sugar on a pill.
    Eric Gill (1882–1940)
