Witold Lutoslawski
Quotations



"I...realized that I could compose music different from that of my past. "
 
"People whose sensibility is destroyed by music in trains, airports, lifts, cannot concentrate on a Beethoven Quartet."
 
"For the last few years I have been working on a new musical form, in which two independent layers are put together. The sections inside these layers begin and end at different times. This is why the name "Chain" was chosen."
 
"In and of itself, music does not express any unambiguous non-musical content whatsoever. Music is music! "
