"She to whom the realm of music is a spiritual home;
he to whom, in his music-making, its language is its
second–if not his native–tongue; she who
understands music on hearing it like her
mother-tongue: such a person has
intrinsic musicality. Music makes
her soul vibrate; it affects her
as directly, almost, as any
moving, edifying,shattering,
uplifting actual emotional experience."
– Bruno Walter
