QUOTE: 
“Any great work of art... revives and re-adapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the 
  extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world - the extent to which it invites you in and lets 
  you breathe its strange, special air.”
AUTHOR: Leonard Bernstein
MEANING OF THE QUOTE: 
“A great piece of music can transport your imagination back in 
  time, ahead in the future, make you laugh or cry, and send you 
  to exotic places.”

COPLAND
