A NEW interview with pianist, Menahem Pressler

Menahem Pressler

Just as the clocks were turned back here in the US, a student from the UK notified me of a recently posted interview with Pressler at the Berlin Philharmonic’s Digital Concert Hall site. This is a FREE option, not needing subscriber status. (NOTE: The interview is in German with English subtitles)

“It is love that drives me. I love this music. I love all music. And I feel that serving music makes your life worthwhile. It makes life worth living…”

“It is inspiration you must look for. When you find inspiration, you are as close to the gods as you can possibly be. Then you are as close to the composer as you can possibly be.”

Menahem Pressler
