Hindemith quote - help!


Recommended Posts

Ok, this is a rather odd request, but just on the off-chance...

I found a quote attributed to Paul Hindemith, and have used it in my dissertation. It is, “Music, whatever sound and structure it may assume, remains meaningless noise unless it touches a receiving mind”.

Can anyone help out at all as to the original source of this quote? I found it in a music theory book, which did not reference the full source, just the author.

If anyone out there knows where Hindemith said this (I Googled and got a date of 1961, but am still not sure whether it was in a book, or talk, or whatever), I would be extremely grateful for any help!
