„Své studenty posílám na lekce baletu - samozřejmě jsem to taky musel zkusit sám. Je to nejlepší způsob, jak se vymanit z vertikálního myšlení. Podstata hudby je totiž horizontální, pohybuje se v čase. A my pianisté sedíme a mačkáme klávesy horem dolem. Několik lekcí baletu dělá divy v uvědomění si fyzického aspektu hudby.“

„The first problem I had with conducting was coming out on stage and turning my back on the audience. It was an utterly foreign sensation. I always felt as if my rear end were hanging out. That particular portion of my anatomy suddenly seemed enormous, living a life of its own, engaged in its own relationship with the public behind my back. For the first couple of years I conducted, I sat on a chair in front of the orchestra, to help quell that particular discomfort.“ My Nine Lives: A Memoir of Many Careers in Music

„... as a pianist, I can’t say I was always a big fan of contemporary music. The challenge of late Beethoven, or Mozart, or Schubert seemed to me to be somehow greater or more worthwhile than that of learning difficult, ill-placed notes. To me, the kind of transcendence in the older pieces really was more interesting. That’s not to say I didn’t love the contemporary pieces I did play. I became very attached to the ones I learned, and I played them with pleasure and absolute commitment. It may be terrible to say this, but playing some of that music is like having a handicapped child. You love it all the more for the problems that it gives you.“ My Nine Lives: A Memoir of Many Careers in Music
