"I remember that on 27 June [1949] — shortly before leaving for the Crimea — I’d for once in my life given a really good performance of the Tchaikovsky Concerto, at Dzintari, near Riga, on the Baltic. I hadn’t admitted anyone to my dressing-room — I never let anyone in — and had fled the building through a side door. I ran about a kilometer, tore off my tailcoat on the beach and threw myself into the sea. It was almost dark, and the waves were an absolute treat. A really successful concert."

— 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.
