„Es gibt ein Geheimnis um die Musik” sagte der alte Harfner „dem ich näher kommen möchte. Auf der Suche nach diesem Geheimnis schufen die Musiker immer kompliziertere Kompositionen — und doch ist die Musik, die die Menschen im Innersten bewegt, oft die einfachste. Aber nicht jede simple Melodie berührt deshalb die Menschen.

Aber die Musiker stoßen manchmal zufällig darauf: einmal, zweimal in ihrem Leben finden manche von ihnen eine Melodie, die unsterblich wird, die den Menschen vertraut wird wie ihre eigene Hand und die ihnen dennoch einen Schauer den Rücken herunterlaufen läßt, wenn sie sie hören. Dann geschieht dieses Geheimnis der Musik.”
