Arthur Rubenstein


I like all kinds of music, but I suppose my favorite genres are jazz and classical. One instrument I always enjoy listening to (and wish I had learned to play when I was a kid) is the piano.

One master of the piano was Arthur Rubenstein, pictured above, who not only played well, but also said a thing or two worth remembering:

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.


and

To be alive, to be able to see, to walk, to have houses, music, paintings—it's all a miracle. I have adopted the technique of living life from miracle to miracle.

He was truly a genius at the keyboard. Right now I'm listening to Isaac Stern play Clair de Lune over and over.
