Karlheinz Stockhausen
[The attacks of September 11 were] the greatest work of art in the cosmos compared to that, we composers are nothing.
Stockhausen quotes
And when they encounter works of art which show that using new media can lead to new experiences and to new consciousness, and expand our senses, our perception, our intelligence, our sensibility, then they will become interested in this music.
Sir Thomas Beecham was asked if he had ever conducted any Stockhausen. He said, "No, but I once trod in some."
