Lyonel Feininger, The Virtuoso, 1920, woodcut

“For the virtuoso, musical works are in fact nothing but tragic and moving materializations of his emotions;  he is called upon to make them speak, weep, sing and sigh, to recreate them in accordance with his own  consciousness. In this way he, like the composer, is a creator, for he must have within himself those passions  that he wishes to bring so intensely to life.”

Franz Liszt, 1811- 1886
