Scientists have just exhumed Beethoven from his grave.  When they opened the coffin they were shocked to see him playing the piano backwards.  When asked what this meant, a spokesman said he was decomposing.  Anon

 

 

You played it for her, you can play it for me.  Casablanca 1942 ***** starring Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman & Paul Henreid & Claude Rains & Conrad Veidt & Sydney Greenstreet & Peter Lorre & Curt Bois et al, director Michael Curtiz  

 

 

I’ve always wanted to smash a guitar over someones head.  You just can’t do that with a piano.  Elton John

 

 

Andre Previn: You’re playing all the wrong notes.

 

Eric Morecambe: … I’m playing all the right notes.  But not necessarily in the right order.  The Morecambe & Wise show, guest Andre Previn, BBC 1971

 

 

When you play, never mind who listens to you.  Robert Schumann

 

 

The piano ain’t got no wrong notes.  Thelonious Monk  

 

 

The notes I handle no better than many pianists.  But the pauses between the notes – ah, that is where the art resides.  Artur Schnabel

 

 

Piano is the social instrument par excellence.  It is drawing-room furniture, a sign of bourgeois prosperity, the most massive of the devices by which the young are tortured in the name of education and the grown-up in the name of entertainment.  Jacques Barzun, Critical Questions, 1984

 

 

Sometimes I can only groan, and suffer, and pour out my despair at the piano!  Frédéric Chopin, cited Jorgensens Chopin and the Swedish Nightingale, 2003

 

 

A man who awoke one morning with an astonishing talent … ‘I woke up and I could suddenly play the piano … I struck the bottom of the pool’ … treated for severe concussion.  Incredible Medicine: Dr Weston’s Casebook III, BBC 2017

 

 

In New York a man is struck by lightning and turns into a musical genius.  Can our brains be rewired?  Weird or What? More Medical Mysteries s3e9, Discovery 2012

 

Tony Cicoria: Not only can he play music, he discovers he can write it.  ibid.    

 

 

His [Thelonious Monk] improvisations were attempts to disguise his love of melody.  He clothed whatever he played with spindly runs, flatted notes, flatted chords, repeated single notes, yawning silences and zigzag rhythms.  Sometimes he pounded the keyboard with his right elbow.  His style protected him not only from his love of melody but from the love of the older pianists he grew out of – Duke Ellington and the stride pianists.  All peered out from inside his solos, but he let them escape only as parody.  Whitney Balliett, New Yorker jazz critic, re Thelonious Monk

 

 

I used to play the piano.  I’m fucked up.  I’m incomplete.  The Gentlemen III: Where’s My Weed At? rescued defingered pianist to Eddie, Netflix 2024
