Pianistic/Music Quotes Thread
« on: August 09, 2015, 02:21:05 AM »
Hello everyone!

I invite you all to share your favourite quotes about the piano, pianists, composers, music etc.

I actually can't think of any I really like off the top of my head, which is why I started this thread and I like a good quote :)
Care to see my playing?

I like this one of Rubinstein.
"In art, identity is very important - he is Joe Smith, and nobody else!- if someone says, "He is the second Liszt, or the second Paderewski, it is already wrong."

That's a good one chopinlover, I rather wish more people would follow that sentiment.
