Don Stanley [JM: How could we describe "deception" in music?] "As far as music being deceptive, I suppose you could look at it that way...."
JM: But I don't! (I only mentioned it because Nabokov wrote that "deception in chess, as in art, is...part of the combination. I think a good combination should always contain a certain element of deception.") One shouldn't confuse Nabokov's manoeuvers of "deception" in art, with "fiction", "reality" or "illusion."
