Personal Quote:

On political music: My dear, it would be terrible poverty of life if music were political. I cannot imagine it, because what does this mean--'political music?' That is why I ignore questions about political music, because music is music. Painting is painting. I can be involved in some political ideals that would be my personal life. See more »
