to my tribute to the American jazz pianist Keith Jarrett

"If you already have a piece of music ingrained in your body, why would you not play it?"

"If music is sound and came from silence, then silence is potentially greater than sound."

"I cannot say what I think is right about music. I only know the rightness of it."

"I believe that a truly valuable artist must be someone who realizes the impossibility of his task — and then continues to do it."
