'Through verse, prose, music, dance - or whatever may be - drama is a performed event involving intense conflict of forces. Effect, action, artifice, and contrasts are part of it. To give the feeling of drama, a theatrical trend is not compulsary. Pure melorhythmic music (and its orchestral technique) may have the power to express dramatic emotions without yielding to human deeds or stage stituations'. - Carlos Surinach
