When you hear Bach or Mozart, you hear perfection. Remember that Bach, Mozart and Beethoven were great improvisers. I can hear that in their music.
Dave Brubeck

Once I understood Bach's music, I wanted to be a concert pianist. Bach made me dedicate my life to music, and it was that teacher who introduced me to his world.
Nina Simone

Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.
Charles Mingus

Music is the effort we make to explain to ourselves how our brains work. We listen to Bach transfixed because this is listening to a human mind.
Lewis Thomas

Since my composer list starts with Bach, more Bach and are there other composers? Well there are the other Bachs and then the rest of the Barocque composers and..... Anyhow, my thanks for today's quotes.

Don, perfect quotes for today, and any day for that matter.
I found some Bach and Brubeck on the net and it was a treat.
I would not have thought of it without your quotes
Thanks
