The purpose of the entire art is the catharsis communicated from soul to soul…“
Mūza Rubackytė (piano player, France-Lithuania)
”Mūza Rubackytė, Lithuanian music ambassador in Europe and the world, compared the composers W. A. Mozart and F. Chopin with “meteorites that soon burned and didn’t have time to live worthily while being alive, yet live in the rays of the glory of their music. However, their music has been strengthening and sublimating people for many years. We draw our inspiration from the mine of their works, and cannot reach the bottom. I have been playing the same pieces for many years, and every time I find something new for myself. It wouldn’t be interesting, if I couldn’t.” Source © XXI amžius
”Let’s not be afraid of Mozart! It’s easy to treat him as a demigod and to be afraid of injecting something more into his music or going over the top. But he was a human, like everyone of us.”
Ian Fountain (pianist, Great Britain)
