I’d rather “struggle” with Bach than cake-walk with Liszt!
notice how I did use quotations; unlike CG’s original sin.
but then again, why is “struggling” such a taboo?
Do you really think Mozart never “struggled,” and that BS about entire symphonies being fully formed in his head before he even took to paper, and, incidentally, never made a single correction; because, after all, this music in his head was nothing less than a divine message ordained by god himself? No!
Mozart “struggled” with that there requiem so much that it ended up killing him; but I ask, does this make him any less of a genius, the fact that he, too, “struggled” every once in a while? No!
Don’t you see, it is out of “struggle” that genius emerges, and not from the heavens as ordained by a god!
