Virgil Garnett Thomson
(1896 - 1989)



"By using a carefully thought out and complex way, you produce by 30 a handful of unforgettable works. But by then you are a prisoner of your method...so you write less and less...without freedom, no one is a master."

Virgil Garnett Thomson

American composer, critic, and organist; associated with Les Six and inveterate champion of 20th-century music.
