Continuing on the theme of the last post…
Heinrich Neuhaus typifies the sort of musician I admire most.
He faced adversity and disappointments with great resilience and tenacity.
In my opinion, the most important mission is to be productive despite setbacks because, in the end, effort and intention count for everything.
I very much like the modest self appraisal Heinrich Neuhaus gave himself:
“As a pianist-fair,
As a musician-good,
As an artist- excellent,
As a human- being-inclined to good.”
