Debussy: “Generally speaking, I feel more and more that music, by its very essence, is not something that can flow inside a rigorous, traditional form. It consists of colours and of rhythmicized time… The rest of it’s just a nonsense invented by unfeeling imbeciles on the backs of the Masters who in most cases were writing no more than the music of their period! Bach was the only one who saw ahead to the truth. In any case, music is a very young art, as much in technical matters as in ‘knowledge’.”
