Rachmaninoff plays Rachmaninoff - NOTE from video producer - "This is Rachmaninoff playing his own Op. 1, Piano Concerto No. 1 in F# Minor. This is the 1st Movement, Vivace. Unfortunately, due to the Youtube video length regulations, the rest of the movement, including the long and fiery cadenza, is posted on a separate video."

pablo casals - the great spanish cellist & humanist "You may become a Shakespeare, a Michaelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?"
Martha Argerich Schumann - Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood) Op. 15 as a very little girl I was taken to see "My Brilliant Career" (as an adult it became my all-time favorite movie) and what stuck with me most, besides thinking Sam Neill was beautiful, was this piece. I learnt to (roughly) play it way back then. Can never hear it without feeling 8 years-old and thinking of that gorgeous Australian architecture.
