Stravinsky: “It is the individual that matters, never the mass… When Disney used Le Sacre du Printemps for Fantasia, he told me: ‘Think of the numbers of people who will now be able to hear your music.’ Well, the numbers of people who consume music (…) is of no interest to me. The mass adds nothing to art. It cannot raise the level, and the artist who aims consciously at mass-appeal can do so only by lowering his own level.”
