lisez cette reflection en francais

Dear Michel,

You must have noticed how much you had impressed me with the music of 'Old Fool back on Earth'.

My musical studies were guided by the spirit and the soul of the Viennese school: Alban Berg, Schoenberg, Webern ... but all of that fantastic music drifted away, thanks to the stupid theories emphasizing the mechanical aspect of the works without regards for the fundamental function of music: the reflection of the soul.

Your music follows that great school in direct line, combining the flower of the soul with the modernism of our days for a better popularity.
I'm jealous like a tiger and have gone back to work.

Your friend
Michel Magne
