WORTH THINKING ABOUT: THE ART OF LISTENING (& LOOKING, & THINKING, & ...)

"If you don't understand what Beethoven 'says,' the reason is that the
sounds he uses are not a meaningful language for you; and the thing to do is
to learn this language as you would any other...Which is to say that you
will have to listen to Beethoven's music, and keep listening... just as the
way to understand a poem is to read it, and the way to understand a painting
is to look at it, so the way--the only way--to understand a piece of music
is to listen to it, and to keep listening."

Press, 1991).
