American composer and critic
Virgil Thomson was an American composer and critic. He was instrumental in the development of the "American Sound" in classical music. He has been described as a modernist, a neoromantic, a neoclassicist, and a composer of "an Olympian blend of humanity and detachment" whose "expressive voice was always carefully muted" until his late opera Lord Byron which, in contrast to all his previous work, exhibited an emotional content that rises to "moments of real passion".
Virgil Thomson Quotes
Let your mind alone, and see what happens.
Try a thing you haven't done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third time to figure out whether you like it or not.
I don't care what other critics say, I only hope to be played.
Try a thing you haven't tried before three times--once to get over the fear, once to find out how to do it, and a third time to find out whether you like it or not.
