Quote
When one is loved, one has no doubt.  When one loves, everything is source of doubt.

Colette
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

At least one person who has claimed "atonal music" is bad because "no one can hear a wrong note" has listened to this performance (by far the most popular version on YouTube!) without flinching:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/6z4KK7RWjmk" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/6z4KK7RWjmk</a>
"l do not consider my music as atonal, but rather as non-tonal. I feel the unity of all keys. Atonal music by modern composers admits of no key at all, no feeling of any definite center." - Arnold Schoenberg

Oh, really?

Do you know, I think that person I am quoting really believes it.  Anyway, he wants us all to believe it.
