One Composer's Reaction to Criticism! - Whew!

Max Reger was a composer who straddled the 19th and 20th centuries, living only 43 years. Many loved his ideas, and about as many loathed them.
A letter he wrote to one critic went as follows:
"Dear Sir: I am sitting in the smallest room in my house. I have your critique in front of me. In a moment it will be behind me."
