'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
