"Do you remember the way the girls
would call out “love you!”
conveniently leaving out the “I”
as if they didn’t want to commit
to their own declarations.
And I agree that the “I” is a pretty heavy concept"
"There are 3 ways of playing and a pianist should be able to do all three. You can play like a pedant or professor: you can sit down and do everything correctly and make sure everything is right. The second way is like an artist: you have greater freedoms and greater imagination. The third way is like a charlatan: in a very showy way, adding all manner of things, bringing the virtuosity to the fore."
RIP Claudio Abbado
The music industry has lost another giant. RIP sir, your music has touched countless of souls and what you leave behind for us will be treasured and handled with utmost care and much love. Will pray for you. x
