"There is a great deal of repetition in our daily lives—in the familiar routines we follow from our waking moments, as a means of safety or efficiency in our work, or as embodied in rituals of worship. Repetition is an important component of the process of learning and refinement, from a toddler taking his or her first steps to a violinist who is driven to internalize Bach’s solo Sonatas and Partitas. ...

"People have been trekking across the planet, making homes in foreign lands since before the invention of the wheel. Composers, susceptible to the musical whims of Royals and Nobles, have always had to turn up in new places, suffer alienation and try to fit in.
