"You want to play with emotion? Read literature, go to museums, discuss art and life with people smarter than you. Have children, give to charity. You will not play beautifully if you do not leave the practice room. Your emotion will always be forced if you are "applying" it to the music. Develop as a human being and your music making will develop. There are no shortcuts. This is why music is a lifetime pursuit."
