Wanda Landowska

Today marks the birth of Wanda Landowska. She was born in July 5th, 1879 and lived until 1959. More about her remarkable life and career can be found here.

Some choice Landowska quotes:

"I never practice; I always play."

"The most beautiful thing in the world is, precisely, the conjunction of learning and inspiration."

"People ask why I play Bach so romantically. Well, Bach was a very romantic man; he had 22 children."

"You go on playing Bach your way, and I'll go on playing him his way."
