p. 83 Pachmann was the greatest exponent of Chopin in my lifetime; and I must have heard him play more times than the number of years I have lived. No-one ever produced quite the tone he was capable of producing. He never hit a chord too hard—at least, not in my hearing; he never forgot the limits of the tonal resources of a piano, the instrument of the home rather than of the concert hall.
p. 85 Pachmann used to play it [Adolph Henselt's Si oiseau j'étais (If I were a bird)] in a way that always made me feel he had some innate power that bewitched the tone of the piano.
