Quote from: Ras on January 13, 2019, 07:23:02 AMHi Mirror ImageYou have a great Debussy quote as your signature:Do you happen to remember where it's from?I would like to read it in its original context.
Quote from: Mirror Image on January 13, 2019, 07:59:48 AMHello Ras, via Wikiquote -Works of art make rules but rules do not make works of art.- As quoted in Companion to Contemporary Musical Thought (1992) by John Paynter, p. 590- Unsourced variant: Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.
Quote from: Ras on January 13, 2019, 08:07:40 AMThanks! I will find that John Paynter book.

Quote from: Mirror Image on January 12, 2019, 08:47:23 PMIndeed. Love his Cello Sonata. One performance of this piece that I've really taken quite a shine to lately has been Gerhardt/Osborne on Hyperion. Have you heard it?
