Tickle those ivories

A lovely article by David Dubal about the power and joy of playing the piano: http://www.newcriterion.com/articles.cfm/Let-s-tickle-the-ivories-7274.

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

When you commune with Bach or Schubert, you can reach the heights of Mount Parnassus, where the atmosphere is rarified.

Playing the piano should be an act without material value.

The piano won’t serve the ego’s craving for recognition.

In a clash of wills, the piano will always win.
