If repression has indeed been the fundamental link between power, knowledge, and sexuality since the classical age, it stands to reason that we will not be able to free ourselves from it except at a considerable cost.
Suddenly I've got an overwhelming desire to surround myself with the aura of classical and Romantic art.
I think any classical training in the theatre is of enormous value.
As a rule, my focus is on classical music, but I love jazz. I love everything, actually.
I love the Russian classics very much, the Russian classical literature. But I also read modern literature. As far as Russian literature is concerned, I am very fond of Tolstoy and Chekhov, and I also enjoy reading Gogol very much.
When I was nine years old, I started playing guitar, and I took classical guitar lessons and studied music theory. And played jazz for a while. And then when I was around fourteen years old, I discovered punk rock. And so I then tried to unlearn everything I had learned in classical music and jazz so I could play in punk rock bands.
Classical - perhaps I should say 'orchestral' - music is so digital, so cut up, rhythmically, pitchwise and in terms of the roles of the musicians. It's all in little boxes. The reason you get child prodigies in chess, arithmetic, and classical composition is that they are all worlds of discontinuous, parceled-up possibilities.
Although cover notes for classical music albums tend to say that the trill of flutes suggests mountain streams and so on, I don't think anybody listens to music with the expectation that they're going to be presented with a sort of landscape painting.
When I was younger, studying classical music, I really had to put in the time. Three hours a day is not even nice - you have to put in six.

I think doing variations on a classical theme is a dangerous thing to do.
Physicists are more like avant-garde composers, willing to bend traditional rules... Mathematicians are more like classical composers.
When I first got a guitar, it was a Spanish, classical thing.
Marxism is like a classical building that followed the Renaissance; beautiful in its way, but incapable of growth.
And what classical music does best and must always do more, is to show this kind of transformation of moods, to show a very wide psychological voyage. And I think that's something that we as classical musicians have underestimated.
Michael Tilson Thomas
From the heaviest of the heavy to classical to country, that's what I listen to, I listen to a variety and I enjoy good music, good songs.
I spent ten years playing classical piano, and that was what led to keyboards and eventually to production and to Linkin Park.
Piano was - well, all musical instruments were taught in this very rigid, formal, classical method when I was young.
I had to listen to the classical music because it calms me down, calms my nerves down.
I have never learned to read or write music so I am not a virtuoso musician like the others you mentioned. I am completely unable to play like them because I never learned classical music, I just developed my own crazy style!
The best gift I was ever given was the arts. My mum gave me those on a silver platter. Growing up, her and my grandmother would take me to ballets, classical concerts, even smoky jazz clubs I wasn't supposed to be in!
Jazz has been such a force in music, that any musician, including classical composers, have been influenced, and obviously performers, also.
I'm not really involved with politics... I'm living in my cocoon with my classical music around.
