Quote of the Day

"When the history of the first half of this century comes to be written -- properly written -- it will be acknowledged the most stupid and brutal in human history." -- Sir Thomas Beecham (1879-1961)

Sir Thomas was speaking, of course, of the 20th century. He is also said to have said, "A musicologist is a man who can read music but can't hear it."
