Percy Graniger Quote

“I firmly believe that music will someday become a “universal language.” But it will not become so as long as our musical vision is limited to the output of four European countries between 1700 and 1900. The first step in the right direction is to view the music of all peoples and periods without prejudice of any kind, and to strive to put the world’s known and available best music into circulation. Only then shall we be justified in calling music a “universal language.”

Percy Graniger (June 20, 1933)

Thanks to Chal Ragsdale for sharing this quote with me.
