Pierre Boulez (1925-)

Pierre Boulez (1925-)Sierra Club


The aim of music is not to express feelings but to express music. It is not a vessel into which the composer distills his soul drop by drop, but a labyrinth with no beginning and no end, full of new paths to discover, where mystery remains eternal.

Am inclined to think that music expresses a social context en masse... and recently, not a lot of mystery. Nice blog BTW.
