The Musically Opinionated

Those who critique music are most often quite direct in their views. 

Writer Gilbert Chesterton says, “Music with dinner is an insult both to the cook and the violinist.”

H.L. Mencken commented, “The opera is to music what a bawdy house is to a cathedral.”

And tenor Luciano Pavarotti protests about music historians, “Learning music by reading about it is like making love by mail!”
