"That technical mastery is of no intrinsic value in music (or love)

be clear to anyone with a knowledge of musical
history: Brahms was a greater composer than Mendelssohn,
though it can be truly asserted that Mendelssohn displayed
more brilliance in technical matters. Elaborate forms and a
brilliant technique conceal a basic inhibition, a reluctance to
directly express love, a fear of self-exposure." - Cornelius Cardew
