John Corigliano

Composer

“I think it’s important for us to realize the freshness of sound is important. If you ever stop up your ears for a few minutes and then let them open, you hear the sound with such clarity because in a sense you cleaned that pollution out. The concert hall used to be the only place you could go to hear an orchestra. It was really a sacred kind of place.”
John Corigliano
