4.1.1. Rumi

4.2. “(…) if you put it in human terms - rather than purely musical ones - what it suggests is that Beethoven is a kind of living metaphor for the creative condition. In part, he's the man who respects the past, who honors the traditions to which art develops. (…) And then there is this other side, the fantastical romantic side of Beethoven which draws from him those unapologetically wrongheaded gestures. (…) But in the end, this sort of amalgam exists for every artist really. Within every creative person, there is an inventor at odds with a museum curator. And most of the startling things that happen in music are the result of some momentary gain by one at the expense of the other.”

4.2.1. “Within every creative person, there is an inventor at odds with a museum curator. And most of the startling things that happen in music are the result of some momentary gain by one at the expense of the other.”
