Quote of the Day: Wednesday, September 14, 2005

When he was finished, we applauded, and I asked him: ‘How do you know when a piece is finished?’ I know now it was a naïve question, even a little foolish. But he answered me without pause. ‘When what I hear up here,’ he said, clasping a palm to his forehead, ‘corresponds to what’s written down here.’ He pointed to the score.” – Brenda Miller, from her Essay, “A Braided Heart: Shaping the Lyric Essay”
