German Jazz

Famous quotes containing the words german and/or jazz:

    Better extirpate the whole breed, root and branch. And this, unless the German people come to their senses, is what we propose to do.
    Gertrude Atherton (1857–1948)

    The basic difference between classical music and jazz is that in the former the music is always greater than its performance—Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, for instance, is always greater than its performance—whereas the way jazz is performed is always more important than what is being performed.
    André Previn (b. 1929)
