Understand then that I am simply Gottschalk, and nobody else....I could not be other, if I would--and I certainly would not be, if I could. I compose just to suit myself, and if my way please you, I am delighted---if not, I cannot help it.
The Germans and their music, I don't much like--with exceptions, of course. A sonata of Mozart sounds thinnish to me, of only Homeopathic potency, and very "mildly drawn." Those little bits of melodies in one hand and little bits of accompaniment in the other--don't ask me to like them--I cannot.
