Lars Fr. H. Svendsen
Traditions brings continuity to one’s existence, but this sort of continuity is precisely what has been increasingly lost throughout modernity.
Lars Fr. H. Svendsen, A Philosophy of Boredom

Traditions that cease to evolve render themselves irrelevant or obsolete. And what's the problem with inventing new performance practices? Are customs being slandered? Do successful alternative diminish the value of traditional ones? *The argument that musicians must embrace conventional rituals is just as perilous as unilaterally rejecting them.*
David Cutler, The Savvy Musician
