Finding one’s own voice is a journey that every artist takes. And in most cases the very successful ones are those who are able to cast an artistic shadow that is unmistakably their own.
That fact allows us to identify Bach, Mozart, Armstrong, Glass almost immediately.
Recently I came across a quote by a composer whose music gets played regularly on this station. I'll paraphrase: “The music I enjoy has to be malleable enough to adapt itself to the song-like effusions of the soul and the fancy of dreams.”
Can you identify the author of this quote and secondly does music that acheives this end appeal to you?
