本杰明·布里顿(Benjamin Britten)名言

It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.

你知道,音乐如此美妙是很残酷的。它有痛苦的孤独之美:力量和自由之美。失望和永不满足的爱情之美。大自然的残酷之美和单调的永恒之美。

The old idea of a composer suddenly having a terrific idea and sitting up all night to write it is nonsense. Nighttime is for sleeping.

一个作曲家突然有了一个很棒的想法,整夜坐着写这是胡说八道。晚上睡觉。

本杰明·布里顿

Composing is like driving down a foggy road toward a house. Slowly you see more details of the house-the color of the slates and bricks, the shape of the windows. The notes are the bricks and the mortar of the house.

作曲就像沿着雾蒙蒙的路向房子驶去。慢慢地,你会看到更多的细节,房子的颜色,板岩和砖,窗户的形状。笔记是房子的砖和砂浆。

These two are not two Love has made them one Amo Ergo Sum! And by its mystery Each is no less but more.

这两个不是两个爱,让他们一个阿莫尔戈的总和!而从它的神秘性来看,每一个都是不少的,而是更多。
