Walter Legge

Walter Legge

English classical record producer, most notably for EMI. His recordings include many sets later regarded as classics and reissued by EMI as "Great Recordings of the Century".
I am convinced that in the arts, committees are useless. What is necessary are people like Karajan, [fellow recording producer John] Culshaw and me; we know not only how to achieve the best artistic results but how to attract the public and carry out the whole operation with carefully chosen collaborators. Democracy is fatal for the arts; it leads only to chaos or the achievement of new and lower common denominators of quality.More Walter Legge quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I disliked singing in English and neither liked the story nor the character of Cressida.More Walter Legge quotes [07/30/2011 05:07:34]
