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 [07/30/2011 05:07:14]

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]
