Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Quote


Picture Quote:



Nevertheless the passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of causing disgust; and music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.  - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
