What is classical music if not the epitome of sensuality, passion, and understated erotica that popular music, even with all of its energy and life, cannot even begin to touch?

Lara St. John, musician

Jazz is a white term to define black people. My music is black classical music.

Nina Simone, musician

Writing detective stories is about writing light literature, for entertainment. It isn't primarily a question of writing propaganda or classical literature.

Steig Larsson, author

Both parents were very encouraging - especially my father. My father thought the sun rose and set with me. Neither one had a musical background or any musical talent. They liked classical music, but neither could carry a tune.

Gordon Getty, businessman

When I was studying... there weren't any black concert pianists. My choices were intuitive, and I had the technique to do it. People have heard my music and heard the classic in it, so I have become known as a black classical pianist.

Nina Simone, musician

To most white people, jazz means black and jazz means dirt, and that's not what I play. I play black classical music.

Nina Simone, musician

A love of classical music is only partially a natural response to hearing the works performed, it also must come about by a decision to listen carefully, to pay close attention, a decision inevitably motivated by the cultural and social prestige of the art.

Charles Rosen, musician

I'm a fan of many different styles of classical and symphonic music.

Billy Sheehan, musician

As far as I was concerned the important thing was that the music was getting the attention as well as me so it was always a great way to get more of the public to connect with classical music, and opera particularly.

Lesley Garrett, musician

One of the problems that we face through the media attention that these artists receive is that there has been an awful lot of talk about opera and classical music being elite and being for an elitist group.

Lesley Garrett, musician

When I began competing with the other artists in New York, I discovered classical North Indian music.

Henry Flynt, artist

In classical oil painting, there seemed to be a radical turn to seeing things as the camera sees them, with that technological modification. I began to have a tremendous problem with all of this.

Henry Flynt, artist

I'm saddened to see that everyone's pitched out the baby with the bath, in that we say that it can't be one or the other, it could be both. I mean, just because we listen to classical music doesn't mean that we can't listen to jazz.

Don Bluth, animator

I really love sort of classical cinema where people were telling stories with very little dialogue, and people were using the camera in a really interesting way.

Alex Winter, actor

Though I'm not religious in the classical sense I did partake in Passover.

Fran Drescher, actress

Classical musicians do this all the time. They want perfection. So they piece things together. Eight bars of this and six bars of that. Glenn Gould said that with a recording he wanted to make perfect versions of pieces.

John Abercrombie, musician

The day is past when schools could afford to give sufficient time and attention to the teaching of the ancient languages to enable the student to get that enjoyment out of classical literature that made the lives of our grandfathers so rich.

James Loeb, businessman

I don't regard myself as a great classical or jazz pianist. I like country music, but I'm not a great player. I just like music. Drums 'n' bass is pretty exciting and I'd love to explore it.

Keith Emerson, musician

There was a period when I'd just come out of college where I'd been playing classical guitar and I suddenly realised that it wasn't what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

Andy Summers, musician

This freedom of political discussion on the highest level is something which Western civilization has in common with that of classical antiquity, but with no other.

Christopher Dawson, writer

I like to listen to classical music... I like mainline jazz.

Herb Alpert, musician

In his day, the audience was well aware of the music, of the classical beat.

Nusrat F. A. Khan,

Yes, I tried to change the classical style in a way that people who don't understand it can enjoy.

Nusrat F. A. Khan,

I also like Western classical music and jazz.

Nusrat F. A. Khan,

Above all, in comedy, and again and again since classical times, passages can be found in which the level of representation is interrupted by references to the spectators or to the fictive nature of the play.

Paul Watzlawick, psychologist

Even the most jingoistic person would have to admit that even American cultural music comes from Europe. That's what classical music is, real European music.

Sonny Rollins, musician

I wanted to give people - which is fairly bizarre considering my whole life is contemporary dance really - I wanted to give people a really fulfilling sense that they had seen a white classical ballet - in a very pure form.

Graeme Murphy, dancer

Music was around in my family in two ways. My mother would occasionally sing to me, but I was mostly stimulated by the classical music my father had left behind. I had an ear for music, I suppose, so that's what began my interest in music.

Tom Glazer, musician

My Dad died during the flu epidemic in 1918 when I was 4 years old. He left a lot of classical recordings behind that I began listening to at an early age, so he must have been a music lover.

Tom Glazer, musician

When I listen to music today, it is about 99 percent classical. I rarely even listen to folk music, the music of my own specialty, because folk music is to me more limited than classical music.

Tom Glazer, musician

When I was younger, studying classical music, I really had to put in the time. Three hours a day is not even nice - you have to put in six.

Alicia Keys, musician

You have to get through the Hamlet hoop as a young actor. Your classical qualifications are based on the quality of your Hamlet. And then, as an older actor, you have to get through the Lear hoop. And I'm approaching the Lear hoop.

Derek Jacobi, actor

I would like to be as fit as I've always been. I've been blessed with good health, I've been blessed with stamina. Particularly for those great classical roles, you need an Olympian stamina. I, fortunately, have that.

Derek Jacobi, actor

I cannot understate the ability to handle classical texts such as Shakespeare.

Louise Jameson, actress

My father was a classical pianist, and my mother was a singer of just about everything.

Carly Simon, musician

I enjoy listening to classical music and heavy metal. I play basketball and try to go diving at least once a year. I don't really have hobbies in the traditional sense... I engage in too many activities already through the actions of my characters.

Alan Dean Foster, author

Humans are imperfect. That's one of the reasons that classical and jazz are in trouble. We're on the quest for the perfect performance and every note has to be right. Man, every note is not right in life.

Branford Marsalis, musician

Actually, I've had very little classical training, although I love listening to classical music very much.

Benny Green, musician

And then you have the classical ballerinas, they're like sopranos. Applied to the dance.

Ninette de Valois, dancer

We do a lot of light classical programming with that, too... obviously... a lot of Tchaikovsky music, Grieg, things like that which have become less classical with classical concerts.

Skitch Henderson, musician

So writing a song is much harder than doing a classical piece for me, because in a classical piece, I can just let the mood dictate what's going to happen.

Glenn Danzig, musician

What's different here is that we have now technologies that allow these life science companies to bypass classical breeding. That's what makes it both powerful and exciting.

Jeremy Rifkin, economist

I think differently, I think it's about reaching everybody on every different plane and every different level, and if I could remix the song and do a dance remix, that's great. If I could do a classical version, that'll be great too. It's all just about expression.

Deborah Cox, musician

He helped make Living Things even more crazy than I wanted it to be. He added old-fashioned piano and classical folk music - that weird otherworldly vibe - all these elements got onto the record.

Matthew Sweet, musician

Sharon went on to play classical but we actually went into totally different instruments which was lucky for the band because otherwise we'd all be playing the same thing!!

Caroline Corr, musician

Then I took 8 years of French Horn, first jazz, and then classical.

Jim Coleman, actor

I love many kinds of music: world music, jazz, classical, pop.

Anita Diament,

Classical music's ability to translate emotional themes is fantastic.

Alan Price, musician

The classical writers... playwrights, Jacobean, Elizabethan playwrights, all showed areas of all classes and how they live and painted them pretty authentically.

Timothy West, actor

I play the piano and have been playing since I was 7, mainly classical Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart.

Kiana Tom, model

I have no doubt that there are great people about though... the thing of it is, nothing to this day moves me like classical music (Debussy, Vaughn Williams).

Gary Lucas,

I played classical as a kid.

John Legend, musician

Everyone town of 100,000 in the United States should have a Classical Theater supported by the town, or the state of the county, or the Federal Government, as they have in every civilized country.

Tony Randall, actor

I think that's one of the things that has always put me in kind of an odd niche. It's that all of my understanding of orchestral music is via film, not via classical music like it's supposed to be. To me it's the same, it doesn't make any difference.

Danny Elfman, musician

I would have to say I might do some stuff, but it's the film that's appealing. I was raised on film. My musical experience is all via film, it's not from classical music.

Danny Elfman, musician

I don't know if it's a sign of all the chaos that is happening out there or not, but I've lately craved the structure and order of classical music, the balance and symmetry.

Helen Reddy, actress

Music has always been transnational; people pick up whatever interests them, and certainly a lot of classical music has absorbed influences from all over the world.

Yo-Yo Ma, musician

I think it's useful to experience other types of dance and other cultures, and the life of a classical dancer these days is certainly not all tutus! So experience of other dance forms is a good idea.

Deborah Bull, dancer

It was the early days of Rock 'n' Roll in this country. We were all struggling to learn music, it might be Country, Jazz, Classical, Blues or even Rock 'n' Roll.

Jim Sullivan, musician

It wasn't all spent on practicing, I did do other things! but the classical guitar means a lot to me so I spend many hours building good chops and getting a good program together.

Jim Sullivan, musician

The difference between religion and morality lies simply in the classical division of things into the divine and the human, if one only interprets this correctly.

Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel, poet

To become a classical ballerina, you have to move to New York when you're 12 or 11 and that becomes your life. I just wanted to be good in my company in Charleston and I wanted it to always be part of my life.

Jennifer Garner, actress

Although I enjoyed writing Film Music it was always a means to an end, in that it enabled me to keep a wife and family and write my classical music, which has always been my passion.

Malcolm Arnold, composer

We were very rich culturally. One Sunday each month, we would do this thing called Chamber Pots at somebody's house. A classical music group would come over and we'd have dinner. There were thirty people - parents and kids - and we'd sit on the floor and listen to this beautiful music.

Kristin Davis, actress

It's like any great medicine that works. It tastes absolutely lousy going down, but ultimately helps and heals you. And that's what Juilliard was. Juilliard is classical training. They don't really want to focus on what you do well - that's what got you into the school. They're training you to do other stuff well, which may not come easily to you.

Viola Davis, actress

My folks have played everything from rock, disco, pop, funk, and blues. My dad has always brought and played different genres like jazz, classical, and Latin. With all this in my pocket, I feel I have a taste of everything for my influences.

Haley Reinhart, musician

I became a set designer for opera. I'm a great opera buff, I love classical music, and I needed a time-out.

Maurice Sendak, artist

I had to listen to the classical music because it calms me down, calms my nerves down.

Novak Djokovic, tennis player

My Mom is a ballet director, so I had this idea in me that classical training is the best foundation for anything you do, so I wanted to get a classical background and voice.

Shuler Hensley, actor

I had spent many years pursuing excellence, because that is what classical music is all about... Now it was dedicated to freedom, and that was far more important.

Nina Simone, musician

I wanted to make a classical piece that was actually designed to be a CD, not designed for performance.

Anne Dudley, composer

I have observed, too, that the people of the many countries that I have visited are showing an ever increasing interest in the classical and traditional music of their own cultures.

George Crumb, composer

In these confused times, the role of classical music is at the very core of the struggle to reassert cultural and ethical values that have always characterized our country and for which we have traditionally been honored and respected outside our shores.

Lorin Maazel, musician

Obviously classical music tends to be stuff that is usually at least a hundred years old.

Steve Hackett, writer

I grew up mostly with classical, big band, and a lot of Irish music - I really didn't start listening to rock and roll until I was maybe sixteen.

Moira Kelly, actress

Many fail to realize this great recording industry was built by so-called jazz artists. And at the other end of the spectrum, a base in European classical music as well.

Ahmad Jamal, musician

I have never learned to read or write music so I am not a virtuoso musician like the others you mentioned. I am completely unable to play like them because I never learned classical music, I just developed my own crazy style!

Ken Hensley, musician

Anyone who has passed though the regular gradations of a classical education, and is not made a fool by it, may consider himself as having had a very narrow escape.

William Hazlitt, critic

A classical work doesn't ever have to be understood entirely. But those who are educated and who are still educating themselves must desire to learn more and more from it.

Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel, poet

Classical philosophical theism maintained the ontological distinction between God and creative world that is necessary for any genuine theism by conceiving them to be of different substances, with particular attributes predicated of each.

Arthur Peacocke, theologian

I'm very flower-like. I love classical music. I go to ballet and I cry. There's nothing so beautiful.

Michael Gambon, actor

It's hilarious, because my guitar has what's known as a tremolo bar or a whammy bar. And the whammy bar is probably the most alien thing on my guitar that could possibly relate to a classical guitar.

Steve Vai, musician

The classical guitar has a dynamic to it unlike a regular acoustic guitar or an electric guitar. You know, there's times when you should play and there's times when you gotta hold back. It's an extremely dynamic instrument.

Steve Vai, musician

I find that actors who are wanting to pursue tv or films don't seem to have much interest in classical theatre.

Renee O'Connor, actress

Classical music has been based on works people love and come back to for aural comfort.

Leila Josefowicz, musician

I started with the classical violin when I was 6, and I guess it went well.

Alison Krauss, musician

I'm a classical type of guy. Whatever's out at that point in time, I like it. I just put my own twist on it, and we go from there.

Carmelo Anthony, athlete

I spent ten years playing classical piano, and that was what led to keyboards and eventually to production and to Linkin Park.

Mike Shinoda, musician

I could have taken the easy life and just done classical, but I felt very strongly about the album, my first pop album, the first time that I'd fused so many influences. I was very proud when it was in the charts in 25 countries at once.

Vanessa Mae, musician

I had classical training but I don't consider myself an opera singer though.

Emmy Rossum, actress

I'd say that my musical influences are anywhere from pop-rock electronica, new age and classical. But I think that specifically, bands - I love Jem, I love Sigur Ross, I love David Gray, I love Elliot Smith... a lot of different people. But I don't find lyrical inspiration from anybody.

Emmy Rossum, actress

I listened to classical guitar and Spanish guitar, as well as jazz guitar players, rock and roll and blues. All of it. I did the same thing with my voice.

Boz Scaggs, musician

On July 26, 1916, I announced to all my friends in America that from now on I resolved to write no more poems in the classical language, and to begin my experiments in writing poetry in the so-called vulgar tongue of the people.

Hu Shih, philosopher

Reality shows that, contrary to other countries in southern Africa, we have no basis for a classical guerilla struggle. We have never had a hinterland, and we do not expect to.

Joe Slovo,

That makes classical music work, the ability to improvise.

Itzhak Perlman,

I look at raising funds for The Perlman Music Program as a challenge and as a way to provide opportunities for people who care about the future of classical music.

Itzhak Perlman,

I was interested in both Western and Indian classical music.

Satyajit Ray, director

At the age when Bengali youth almost inevitably writes poetry, I was listening to European classical music.

Satyajit Ray, director

But I'd play on everything from pop records to a lot of the glam stuff to rock stuff to classical stuff. I used to get called to do all those things, it was great.

Rick Wakeman, musician

It has been shown that, in contrast to everything which classical national economy has hitherto taught, not the producer but the consumer is the ruling factor in economic life.

Hjalmar Schacht, economist
