More Thoughts on Beethoven

“You can’t possibly hear the last movement of Beethoven’s Seventh and go slow.”

Oscar Levant, explaining his way out of a speeding ticket.

“I occasionally play works by contemporary composers and for two reasons. First to discourage the composer from writing any more and secondly to remind myself how much I appreciate Beethoven.”

Jascha Heifetz
