Quote of the Day, 9/22/06

Following from yesterday's "artists on music" quotes, here are a few quotes about color and painting, from the perspective of musicians.

Arthur Rubinstein
I'm passionately involved in life: I love its change, its color, its movement. To be alive, to be able to see, to walk, to have houses, music, paintings - it's all a miracle.

Luciano Pavarotti
It's better to have a good acoustic, so you use all the color of your voice.

Leopold Stokowski
A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.

Robert Schumann
The painter turns a poem into a painting; the musician sets a picture to music.
