'Thousands of pianoforte recitals are given in the great music centres of the world by aspiring students every year. They look forward to great careers. They play their Liszt Rhapsodies, their Concertos and their Sonatas, often with most commendable accuracy, but with very little of the one great quality which the world wants and for which it holds its highest rewards - Beauty'

- Josef Lhevinne, Basic Principles in Pianoforte Playing, Philadelphia 1924
