Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
The earth has music for those who listen.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
