Yes & No

“[The Symphony in Three Movements] both does and does not ‘express my feelings’ about [world events].”

“In spite of what I have said, the Symphony is not programmatic. Composers combine notes. That is all. How and in what form the things of this world are impressed upon their music is not for them to say.”

— Stravinsky, from Dialogues and a Diary

I like to listen to this music while working out at the gyms in Dallas.
