Of course I have used dissonance in my time, but there has been too much dissonance. Bach used dissonance as good salt for his music. Others applied pepper, seasoned the dishes more and more highly, till all healthy appetites were sick and until the music was nothing but pepper.

-Sergei Prokofiev

(I’ve been listening to Romeo and Juliet, getting ready to move from Puccini to Prokofiev and opera to ballet. Man, I love that music! I even like this particular ballet.)
