Examples of composer in a Sentence

  1. Arthur Honegger:

    There is no doubt that the first requirement for a composer is to be dead.

  2. Igor Stravinsky:

    I have learned throughout my life as a composer chiefly through my mistakes and pursuits of false assumptions, not by my exposure to founts of wisdom and knowledge.

  3. Claude Lévi-Strauss:

    The musical emotion springs precisely from the fact that at each moment the composer withholds or adds more or less than the listener anticipates on the basis of a pattern that he thinks he can guess, but that he is incapable of wholly divining. If the composer withholds more than we anticipate, we experience a delicious falling sensation; we feel we have been torn from a stable point on the musical ladder and thrust into the void. When the composer withholds less, the opposite occurs: he forces us to perform gymnastic exercises more skillful than our own.

  4. Mikhail Tatarnikov:

    To be honest, all they have in common is the composer, that's in fact where the interest and the challenge of the production lies -- to stage three different stories while still creating an arc of tension among them.

  5. Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky:

    I have learned throughout my life as a composer chiefly through my mistakes and pursuits of false assumptions, not my exposure to founts of wisdom and knowledge.
