    In his book The Art of Piano Playing, page 22, Heinrich Neuhaus writes:

    “Our puspose…is to play our amazing, our magnificent piano literature in such a way as to make the heart like it, to make him love life still more, make his feelings more intense, his longings more acute and give greater depth to his understanding….”

    Very profound.

    Sounds like a plan to me. It’s all about emotion, passion and getting the message delivered.

    Lofty goals and purposes to work towards.
