Riccardo Muti accepting the Birgit Nilsson Prize

“Music is extremely important. Education in music is essential.”

“What is important is to teach young boys and girls in a modern society that an orchestra, a symphonic orchestra, a chorus, is a symbol of a society — how a society should work and stay together.”

… and every player knows that his freedom must exist but should not stop or damage the freedom of the other player, but all the players together in their freedom and expressing their feelings they all must work in one direction that is harmony.

Oh heck, just listen!

Music makes more gentle the heart.
