Claude Debussy: "Music is the space between the notes"!

(Achille) Claude Debussy (22 August 1862 – 25 March 1918) was a French composer. He is sometimes seen as the first Impressionist composer, although he vigorously rejected the term.
He was among the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Born to a family of modest means and little cultural involvement, Debussy showed enough musical talent to be admitted at the age of ten to France's leading music college, the Conservatoire de Paris.
He originally studied the piano, but found his vocation in innovative composition, despite the disapproval of the Conservatoire's conservative professors.
He took many years to develop his mature style, and was nearly 40 when he achieved international fame in 1902 with the only opera he completed, Pelléas et Mélisande.

Johann Sebastian Bach: "La musica aiuta a non sentire dentro il silenzio che c’è fuori"!

"Tre cose sono necessarie per un buon pianista: la testa, il cuore e le dita".
"La perfezione si raggiunge per gradi".
"Ai miei occhi ed alle mie orecchie l’organo è il re di tutti gli strumenti".
"La musica non è nelle note, la musica è tra le note".

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

"Buffone è chi non ride mai".
"Ogni difficoltà su cui si sorvola, diventa un fantasma che turberà i nostri sonni".

Franz Liszt's Love Letter to Marie d'Agoult

"My heart overflows with emotion and joy!
I do not know what heavenly languor, what infinite pleasure permeates it and burns me up.
It is as if I had never loved!
Tell me whence these uncanny disturbances spring, these inexpressible foretastes of delight, these divine, tremors of love.
Oh! all this can only spring from you, sister, angel, woman, Marie!"

Paganini non ripete!

La frase “Paganini non ripete” ha origine da un episodio risalente al 1825.
Al Teatro Falcone di Genova l'artista fu chiesto dal re Carlo Felice per il bis di un brano che gli era piaciuto; ma poiché Paganini aveva improvvisato, non è stato in grado di ripetere la performance e si dice che abbia dato questa come sua risposta.
Di conseguenza, è stato espulso dal Regno di Sardegna per due anni.

Robert Schumann: "Talent works, genius creates"!

"Art was not created as a way to riches. Strive to become a true artist; all else will take care of itself".
"Only if the form is first clear to you will the spirit then reveal itself".
"To compose is to remember music that has never been written".
"When you play, never mind who listens to you".

▻ "Andare lento e correre sono errori di pari gravità".
▻ "Il musicista colto potrà studiare una Madonna di Raffaello con la stessa utilità con cui il pittore studierà una sinfonia di Mozart... L'estetica di un'arte è quella delle altre, soltanto il materiale è diverso".

Paganini | Cartoon Drawing by Johann Peter Lyser

Johann Peter Lyser
(German engraver, journalist, critic, miscellaneous writer; caricaturist,1804-1870)
about Paganini from the magazine "Originalien", 1830

"Paganini is an Italian artist🎨, and an Italian artist will be never sad or misanthrope. If he become that, it is the end of the art. In the character of Paganini there is nothing exalted.
His heart bits with a strong joy of living, it is attached to this land and to all it has to offer. However great the passion for his art is, he does despise nothing, not even things of little importance if they offer enjoyment […].
Paganini is one of the strangest, indeed baroque and certainly greatest phenomena, that cross land for over a century, but there is nothing mysterious about him. He his not like the stormy sea, but he is like the quiet lake.

Mariano Fortuny y Marsal | Fantasy on Faust, 1866


In this work, Mariano Fortuny y Marsal🎨 (1838-1874) establishes an eloquent link between painting and music and a clear exposition of what his friend, the Baron Davillier, called his very lively and very pure taste in music.
Fortuny depicts one of the musical evenings that he attended in Madrid during the summer of 1866 at his friend and former classmate, Catalan painter Francisco Sans y Cabot’s studio at no. 13, calle Flor Baja in Madrid.
