"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."

Olivier Messiaen - Twenty Contemplations on the Baby Jesus - The Contemplation of Time
Pierre-Laurent Aimard, piano
