A Fancy For Dissonant Chords.

It is absolutely requisite, to please certain persons, that music should be crammed with chords of the second, major and minor, with sevenths, ninths, fourths and fifths employed without reason or intention, unless that of being, as frequently as possible, harsh to the ear. These musicians take a fancy to dissonant chords, as certain animals have a predilection for salt, prickly plant and thorny shrubs.—Berlioz.
