Shut up and play

It has been too long since we had a round of Shut Up and Play. Happily, just now I stumbled onto this Web site and found a dandy.

“I feel a deep attachment to Chopin’s Waltzes,” says pianist Alice Sara Ott. “They reflect the whole arc of his composing life, and they also reflect his split personality – between Polish and French – and his lifelong search for identity. I feel split in a similar way, between Japanese and German. Only in music do I feel completely at home.”

Aw, for Pete's sake.

Shut up and play.
