Quote of the day- Gal on Brahms

“If there was anything that Brahms profoundly detested, it was theorizing. For him, music was a matter of living perception, of living experience; he considered it pointless t to speculate about the conditions of its effect. That concepts such as expression, sincerity, profundity and greatness cannot be measured in music does not alter the fact that they exist.”

Hans Gál,  Johannes Brahms, His Work and Personality
