„In the negro melodies of America I discover all that is needed for a great and noble school of music.“

—  Antonín Dvořák Czech composer 1841 - 1904

Interviewed by James Creelman, New York Herald, May 21, 1893.
Kontext: In the negro melodies of America I discover all that is needed for a great and noble school of music. They are pathetic, tender, passionate, melancholy, solemn, religious, bold, merry, gay or what you will. It is music that suits itself to any mood or any [[purpose. There is nothing in the whole age of composition that cannot be supplied with themes from this source. ]]
