"...Dionysian pianists care about Dionysian pianists, whereas Apollonian pianists care about music."
Another great article by Bernard Holland of the NYTimes.
"Technique is not about muscle building but about optimal allocation of resources. More happens faster and more clearly with the minimum of gesture. Weight and relaxation, not force, make big sound. So much energy is squandered on these melodramas for the eye — and so much attention diverted — that it is a wonder our pianistic thespians can hear themselves at all."
