Arrau on Pachmann
by Joseph Horowitz
[Arrau:] Let's see, what Chopin have I liked?
. . . Of course I heard de Pachmann. The Fourth Scherzo.
That was quite beautiful—light,
and all the passage-work somehow beseelen [soulful] also.
[That is Horowitz's original. More likely
is beseelt. Also possible is [inspired or animated].]
