Copy of 1955


“For me, my concerts are over when the final note has been played, I refuse to play back my own music again. This is something where I run away from myself. The only exception are my so-called ‘historical’ recordings. I listened to how I played this Chopin etude in 1955 at the age of nine. I was really rather stunned by how instinctively I interpreted it correctly. After this recording, the reporter asked me for the radio transmission what I like doing besides playing piano. I replied, quickly and curtly, ‘play football!’. It was certainly possible for the passions for football and piano to exist in parallel.”
