"It is not a mechanical routine but something essential to my daily life.
I go to the piano, and I play two preludes and fugues of Bach. I cannot think of doing otherwise. It is a sort of benediction on the house.
But that is not its only meaning for me.
It is a rediscovery of the world of which I have the joy of being a part.
It fills me with awareness of the wonder of life, with a feeling of the incredible marvel of being a human being.
The music is never the same for me, never.
Each day is something new, fantastic, unbelievable.
That is Bach, like nature, a miracle!"
- Legendary cellist Pablo Casals,
from Joys and Sorrows
