Visitors unwelcome.
Sorabji quotes
With a wracking head and literally my whole body shaking as with ague I write this and tell you I have just this afternoon early finished Clavicembalisticum... The closing 4 pages are so cataclysmic and catastrophic as anything I've ever done — the harmony bites like nitric acid — the counterpoint grinds like the mills of God...
To the everlasting glory of those few men blessed and sanctified in the curses and execrations of those many whose praise is eternal damnation.
