Don’t play what’s there. Play what’s not there.–Miles Davis
Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.–Frederic Chopin
Rests always sound well.–Arnold Schoenberg
Jack Reilly says
The first and last quotes are inane, and logical fallacies. Chopin’s has real meaning, thought and depth. His music towers over the other two nut cases!!!
Barry McCanna says
Well said Jack. Davis and Schoenberg are trying to sound profound, and failing. Chopin is profound, as one would expect from his music.
