The best performers of our time are those who are capable of acting within a wide historical perspective, and resolving the tensions between creative demands of past and present, employing their instruments as a means of research and expression. Their virtuosity is not confined to manual dexterity nor to philological specialisation. They can dedicate themselves to the only virtuosity existing today: one of sensibility and intelligence.
