If We Are To Have Great Music

SKF NOTE: Here’s a bit of universal wisdom from the great pianist/composer Sergei Rachmaninoff from a book I’m reading:

If we are to have great music we must return to the fundamentals which made the music of the past great. Music cannot be just color and rhythm; it must reveal the emotions of the heart.
