Quote of the week

From my sister, the conductor Cynthia Woods, explaining to a board member why it might be better in this instance to start a concert with an overture by Brahms or Wagner than one by Mozart….

 

Mozart is the string bikini of composers- if you can pull it off, great, but I’m just not sure our orchestra has the body for it…..

    Fantastic!

    I’m sure this will be re-quoted many times!
    What a musical family you are…
