Description
Excerpt: Musicians as lovers! The very phrase evokes and parades a pageant of amours! The thousand heartaches; the fingers clutching hungrily at keys that might be other fingers; the fiddler with his eyelids clenched while he dreams that the violin, against his cheek is the satin cheek of ?the inexpressive She;? the singer with a cry in every note; the moonlit youth with the mandolin tinkling his serenade to an ivied window; the dead?marches; the nocturnes; the amorous waltzes; the duets; the trills and trinkets of flirtatious scherzi; the laughing roulades; the discords melted into concord as solitude into the arms of reunion?these are music?s very own.
