Masterwords


Francesco Lamperti 

He vehemently deprecates intelligence and an inquiring spirit in his eleves, and refuses to have anything to do with them unless they render him a blind and unreasoning obedience. I do not want the wrong-headed: you must obey me like a dog! is a favorite axiom of this agreeable gentleman. - Dwight's Journal of Music, 1877
