— Sviatoslav Richter, Notebooks, 96 (via homilius)
I’m starting work on Beethoven’s ‘Tempest’ sonata and some other stuff so I have something to do when I have my consultation lesson at the conservatoire. Needless to say, it’s bloody hard work! It’s not a matter of playing the notes that is hard, it’s getting the tone right.
Beethoven’s not for the weak.
Yes! I’ve been working at the piano with this same facial expression, especially with the new Brahms Intermezzo I just started working on. How do you play it so that you can coax SENSE out of that thick texture?!
PLAYING THE PIANO turns idle leisure time into real pleasure time for busy people.
The busiest people you know—presidents, industrial leaders, scientists, doctors, have wide interests, share many hobbies. And the one that is most cherished of all is playing the piano.
If you’ve often said to yourself, ‘I wish I could play, too…wish I’d learned when I was young enough!’ …good news! You are young enough, thanks to modern teaching methods. Drop in and let us show you…soon.

Sometimes when I drink, I think.
I think about people who don’t like Brahms.
And I still love you guys
but Op. 119 though.
When I’m 80 years old (assuming), I’ll still be listening to what it has to say.
