Mediocrity - Poem by gershon hepner
To be preserved from mediocrities
Debussy should have prayed, like me,
but since we can’t spend time with Socrates
we’re all condemned to mediocrity
which J.S. Bach can’t compensate for, though
he does provide us with an antidote,
providing the illusion it will go
away while in the Flood we have no boat.
Alan Chapman cited Debussy before broadcasting a performance of J.S. Bach’s keyboard concerto number 1 in D Minor (BWV 1052) , performed by David Frey, reminding listeners that Debussy once described Bach as an immortal god to whom musicians should pray so that that they may be preserved from mediocrity.'
