Stravinsky: “(…) music is too high an art to be absorbed by the subconscious mind. Music expresses nothing of a realistic character… If a movement in a ballet should happen to be a visualization of the words ‘I Love You,’ then this reference to the actual world would play the same role in the dance (and in my music) that a guitar would play in a Picasso still-life: something of the real world is caught as pretext or clothing for the inherent abstraction.”
