The excerpts in this collection come primarily from my two blogs: S.F. Classical Music Examiner, and Free Composition.

Because the collection is large—and expanding—I have separated it into three categories.

Below, and in the right margin, you will find links to individual items.

Excerpts about Composers and their Music

A collection of stories, sayings, and opinions about composers from Bach to Wagner.

Excerpts about Music and the Profession

These quotations cover aspects of making music, from conservatories to classicism.

Excerpts on General Topics

Truly, anything that happened to come to mind—the way bread is served in restaurants, or Catholic Mariology, or anything in between.
