From you, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, The substance of my dreams took fire. You built cathedrals in my heart, And lit my pinnacled desire.
Whether the angels play only Bach in praising God I am not quite sure; I am sure, however, that en famille they play Mozart.Karl Barth
The sonatas of Mozart are unique; they are too easy for children, and too difficult for artists.Artur Schnabel
One day the last portrait of Rembrandt and the last bar of Mozart will have ceased to be — though possibly a colored canvas and a sheet of notes will remain — because the last eye and the last ear accessible to their message will have gone.oswald spengler
If future society assumes the contours foretold by Marxism, if the jungle of our cities turns to the polis of man and the dreams of anger are made real, the representative art will be high comedy. Art will be the laughter of intelligence, as it is in Plato, in Mozart, in Stendhal.George Steiner
Certain things in Mozart will and can never be excelled.richard wagner
When I started this song I was still thirty-three The age that Mozart died and sweet Jesus was set free Keats and Shelley too soon finished, Charley Parker would be And I fantasized some tragedy'd be soon curtailing me Well just today I had my birthday I made it thirty-four Mere mortal, not immortal, not star-crossed anymore I've got this problem with my aging I no longer can ignore A tame and toothless tabby can't produce a lion's roar.harry chapin
Delsarte tells me that Mozart stole outrageously from Galuppi, in the same way, I suppose, that Molière stole from anybody anywhere, if he found something work taking. I said that what was Mozart had not been stolen from Galuppi, or from anyone else for that matter.eugène delacroix
Mozart didn't need a scheme for his music. He played and sang with the heavenly lightness of a child.joseph goebbels
With Vytautas Juozapaitis as a perfectly evil Don Giovanni, the Teatro Lirico d'Europa seduced an audience of about 850 at the Garde Arts Center Monday night. Juozapaitis, a singer with the Lithuanian National Opera, stood out as the despicable title character of this most famous of Mozart operas. He took over the stage with both his supple and strong voice as well as a stage presence that seemed so natural it was hard to look at him without thinking he was Don Giovanni.vytautas juozapaitis
The truth is that Mozart , Pascal , Boolean Algebra, Shakespeare , parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton , the emancipation of women, Kant , Marx , and Balanchine ballets don't redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history.Susan Sontag
Turing had a strong predeliction for working things out from first principles, usually in the first instance without consulting any previous work on the subject, and no doubt it was this habit which gave his work that characteristically original flavor. I was reminded of a remark which Beethoven is reputed to have made when he was asked if he had heard a certain work of Mozart which was attracting much attention. He replied that he had not, and added "neither shall I do so, lest I forfeit some of my own originality."alan turing
Master Wayne, since the age of seven you've been into the art of deception like Mozart to the harpsichord, but you've never been too hot at lying to me.Alfred Pennyworth
As this earth will suffocate me, I implore you to have my body opened so that I will not be buried alive. Not any more. Play Mozart in memory of me and I will hear you.
Mozart composed his music not for the elite, but for everybody.
For years I said if I could only find a comfortable chair I would rival Mozart.morton feldman
