Frederick Delius
Quotations



"Music is an outburst of soul. "
 
"It is only that which cannot be expressed otherwise that is worth expressing in music."
 
"Nothing is so wonderful as elemental feeling; nothing is more wonderful in art than elemental feeling expressed intensely."
 
"Music is a cry of the soul.
It is addressed and should appeal instantly to the soul of the listener.
It is a revelation, a thing to be reverenced."
 
"Emotion is the flesh and the blood of music."
 
"You can't teach a young musician to compose any more than you can teach a delicate plant to grow, but you can guide him a little by planting a stick in here and a stick in there."
