Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.



(French, German)

La simplicité est la réussite absolue. Après avoir joué une grande quantité de notes, toujours plus de notes, c'est la simplicité qui émerge comme une récompense venant couronner l'art.

Einfachheit ist das höchste Ziel. Nachdem man eine Unmenge Noten und noch mehr Noten gespielt hat, tritt die Einfachheit als krönender Lohn der Kunst hervor.
