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

    Compare the history of the novel to that of rock ‘n’ roll. Both started out a minority taste, became a mass taste, and then splintered into several subgenres. Both have been the typical cultural expressions of classes and epochs. Both started out aggressively fighting for their share of attention, novels attacking the drama, the tract, and the poem, rock attacking jazz and pop and rolling over classical music.
    W. T. Lhamon, U.S. educator, critic. “Material Differences,” Deliberate Speed: The Origins of a Cultural Style in the American 1950s, Smithsonian (1990)

    This music crept by me upon the waters,
    Allaying both their fury and my passion
    With its sweet air; thence have I followed it,
    Or it hath drawn me rather.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    See where my Love sits in the beds of spices,
    Beset all round with camphor, myrrh, and roses,
    And interlaced with curious devices
    Which her apart from all the world incloses!
    There doth she tune her lute for her delight,
    And with sweet music makes the ground to move,
    Whilst I, poor I, do sit in heavy plight,
    Wailing alone my unrespected love;
    Bartholomew Griffin (d. 1602)

    The basic difference between classical music and jazz is that in the former the music is always greater than its performance—Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, for instance, is always greater than its performance—whereas the way jazz is performed is always more important than what is being performed.
    André Previn (b. 1929)
