All those preludes are the same and the reader hurries on to the fugue  (Dmitri Shostakovich Quotes) Every piece of music is a form of personal expression for its creator... If a work doesnt express the composers own personal point of view, his own ideas, then it doesnt, in my opinion, even deserve to be born  (Dmitri Shostakovich Quotes) I write music, it’s performed. After all, my music says it all. It doesn’t need historical and hysterical commentaries. In the long run, any words about music are less important than the music  (Dmitri Shostakovich Quotes) What can be considered human emotions? Surely not only lyricism, sadness, tragedy?
