Harrison Birtwistle
Quotations



"There is something absolutely fundamental about Orpheus - the subject matter is music, it's about the birth of music."
 
"My operas and my theatre works are very formal pieces. They usually come from musical ideas in the first place rather than ideas about subject matter. There is something very foreign about the theatre that I'm on about - musicians seem to understand it!"
