never enough

Don’t “listen” to this.

Close your eyes: let the sounds inhabit you.

Then you will inhabit the sounds.

musical thoughts

Mozart was a kind of idol to me—this rapturous singing . . . that’s always on the edge of sadness and melancholy and disappointment and heartbreak, but always ready for an outburst of the most delicious music.

Saul Bellow (1915-2005)
