"The singer and the violinist are always studying music, even when they practice a succession of single notes. Not so with the pianist, however, for an isolated note on the piano, whether played by the most accomplished artist or the man in the street, means nothing, absolutely nothing."

(Harold Bauer)

"It is not important the study of the technique, but the technique of the study."

(Franz Liszt)
