One idea that is important to me was summarised by János Ferencsik: "We're a lucky breed, us musicians. The thing we do that brings other people pleasure also brings us our greatest pleasure – if all goes well."
"When life begins with music, it enhances every later activity. It is a treasure for life that can help you get through many troubles. Music is a nourishing, comforting elixir that enhances the beauty of life and everything of value contained within."(Zoltán Kodály)
