In writing music, the structure of each piece is a very important factor.
- Leo Ornstein

what I hear.
- Leo Ornstein

Today each composer is not only involved in aesthetics,
but he's actually trying to create his own language.

Of all the arts, music is really the most abstract.
- Leo Ornstein

There are some people, by the way, that associate a

the traditional things.
- Leo Ornstein

When I was speaking about communicating,
I meant that the listener - we have to reach the listener;
otherwise,
of course, you're writing the piece,
as I say,
only for the satisfaction of seeing it on the paper for yourself,
and then it ends right there.
- Leo Ornstein

Besides merely some pleasure that we get out of the
combinations of pitches together and lines,
I think that there is some satisfaction that we get
in the fact of having this diffuse thing organized
very concretely and put onto a frame and have it actually decided.

Now, there are sometimes making a connection between

times until he really gets acquainted with the language,
and then he can begin to make an estimate of the intrinsic,
aesthetic value of that piece of music.

in controlling things, but the first impulse has to
be something that you simply cannot make just out of technique,
or else it becomes perfectly evident that it is nothing
but technique that you're exercising.
- Leo Ornstein

The danger of that - and there's a grave danger that I,
myself, have to be very aware of - is that you become
so involved and intrigued in the language that sometimes
you lose track that that is only a means to an aesthetic
experience that the listener has to get.
- Leo Ornstein

Because essentially Schoenberg was an extremely gifted man.
And in spite of many of his theories and so on,
when he really began to write music,
he still was guided very much by his internal hearing,
by what we call your internal ear.
- Leo Ornstein

No, I think that a person writes a poem because they
have an inner urge of something that they want to express,
and I think it's that inner urge that you want to express
when you write a piece of music.

of the performances that I've heard so far by some
pianists may be superior to my own playing because
those are two totally different acts altogether.
- Leo Ornstein

is what compromises one makes so that the listener
understands somewhat of what you're doing,
what you're trying to express.
- Leo Ornstein

I think recordings have been a terrific advance because now,
when you have a piece of music, particularly something
that appears to the listener very complicated,
there's really a push to the world to try to figure
out what it was that he was hearing.
- Leo Ornstein
