Like nature, Feldman’s music has an indestructible quality, for all its surface fragility. As a personality Feldman was abrasive but brittle; he could be insensitive to the feelings of others but one sensed in him a vulnerability. “The real for me is how I can leap into this thing which I call life. Music must have sensuous dimension”, he once said.
