Selected Works



"All this time my colleagues (some of them a good deal younger than me, some mere beginners) are played far and wide, and their music is circulated far and wide too, because their publishers take trouble over them. If I were to make a list of all my disappointments on this front I’d never get to the end. I’ve had enough. I’m eaten up with impatience and useless regrets and I want an end of it."
