“Now when you hear a piece from the pre-classic, classic or romantic periods, the sounds fall without any trouble and agreeably into the already prepared compartments. But when the music for which you have no prepared compartments strikes your ear, what happens? Either the music remains outside you or you force it with all your might into one of those compartments, although it does not fit. The compartment is either too long or too short, either too narrow or too wide, and it hurts you and you blame the music. But in reality you are to blame, because you force it into a compartment into which it does not fit, instead of calmly, passively, quietly and without opposition, helping the music build a new compartment for itself.” -Ernst Toch
