For Better Than It Sounds (from Mark Twain’s remark that “Wagner’s music is better than it sounds”) David W. Barber has compiled hundreds of the wittiest, cleverest and sometimes nastiest remarks ever made about music – of all kinds. Sometimes pithy, sometimes provocative, sometimes profound and always amusing, these quotes by, for and about famous (and not-so-famous) musicians will brighten your day – and maybe even make you see music in a whole new light.
