«My musical tastes are a little unusual. I like 1750 Bach and before, and Debussy after, and in the middle, l don't listen. Except for a little Beethoven. That's it. I never listened to Romantic music ever, not even a minute, lt is no part of my life, If all of it stopped tomorrow morning, I would not know!» (Steve Reich)
