Makes peace with enemies and brings back loving memories.

This thread is both timely and important. Fame, money, finger dexterity, arguing incessantly about which sorts of music we like or dislike, making reverend gestures toward this or that way of playing, this or that magisterium of common practice or avant-garde - the underlying reason we play and listen to music is unconnected with these things, and is utterly ineffable. Thank you for reminding us of it.

Agreed. Let us all listen to one of the greatest instances of this ever: Brendel playing the Appassionata.

Cheers ted! Unfortunately online people forget what music is really about and keep posting about their favorite so and so and what's the best fastest most difficult etc. As you can see this thread doesn't get much response since I'm sure many don't know the real power of music and just think it's for entertainment, a tool for comparisons or to show off with. The Internet has become quite a stupid place lolol.
