Artur Schnabel
The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes ah, that is where the art resides.
Schnabel quotes
Children are given Mozart because of the small quantity of the notes; grown-ups avoid Mozart because of the great quality of the notes.
I know two kinds of audience only one coughing, and one not coughing.

Schnabel Artur quotes
Applause is a receipt, not a note of demand.
Schnabel Artur
I am attracted only to music which I consider to be better than it can be performed. Therefore I feel (rightly or wrongly) that unless a piece of music presents a problem to me, a never-ending problem, it doesn't interest me too much.
