„It's as if they avoid melodies, for fear of having perhaps stolen them from someone else.“

21 June 1880
Cosima Wagner's Diaries (1978)
Kontext: Music has taken a bad turn; these young people have no idea how to write a melody, they just give us shavings, which they dress up to look like a lion's mane and shake at us... It's as if they avoid melodies, for fear of having perhaps stolen them from someone else.
