Quotations by Hans Guido Freiherr von Bülow

Posted by thesinger on November 25, 2007

Hans Guido Freiherr von Bülow (January 8, 1830 – February 12, 1894) was a German conductor, virtuoso pianist, and composer of the Romantic era. He was one of the most famous conductors of the 19th century. Here are some quotes of his for you to enjoy.

* “A tenor is not a man but a disease”.
* To a trombonist: “Your tone sounds like roast-beef gravy running through a sewer”.
* Upon being awarded a laurel wreath: “I am not a vegetarian”.
* “Always conduct with the score in your head, not your head in the score”.
* “Bach is the Old Testament and Beethoven the New Testament of music”.
* “In the beginning was rhythm”.

There you have it! Now, wasn’t that random?
