Musical Quote for Today

"A composer who has the power to construct very beautiful works of art in a certain form by inventing ideas, and by showing in a new light ideas not invented by him, deserves to be regarded as a great composer."
—Engel

in 1892, Leoncavallo's opera I Pagliacci took place in Milano, Italy with Arturo Toscanini conducting. The first cast included Victor Maurel and Mario Ancona.
