Je n’ai jamais voulu être un organiste, j’ai voulu être un musicien qui joue de l’orgue. C’est-à-dire… rien de spécifique. 

Xavier Darasse

I never wanted to be a musicologist, I always wanted to be a musician who does research. That is to say … not a specialist.

After Xavier Darasse

Ich wollte nie ein Cembalist sein, ich wollte immer ein Musiker sein, der Cembalo spielt. Das soll heißen… kein Spezialist.

Nach Xavier Darasse

Volevo mai essere un direttore, ma un musicista che suona con altri. Cioè … niente di specifico.
