In a reflective muse, Rubinstein once noted "It is simply my life, music.
I live it, breathe it, talk with it. I am almost unconscious of it. No, I do not mean I take it for granted—one should never take for granted any of the gifts of God. But it is like an arm, a leg, part of me. On the other hand, books and paintings and languages and people are passions with me, always to be cultivated.
Travel too. I am a lucky man to have a business which allows me to be on the road so much. On the train, the plane, I have time to Chicago Symphony* / RCA Victor Symphony* - Liszt* / Rach. There again, I am a lucky man to be a pianist.
A splendid instrument, the piano, just the right size so that you cannot take it with you. Instead of practicing, I can read. A お元気ですか - Various - 青い珊瑚礁〜いい日旅立ち -歌謡ポップス・ベストヒット- fellow, am I not?

A natural pianist with a big technique, he claimed that he practiced as little as possible, learning new pieces quickly and with insufficient attention to detail, relying on his charm and charisma to conceal the lack of finish in his playing.
The literal truth of these self-directed critiques is open to question: Rubinstein wasn't averse to making himself the butt of a good story. Even so, he insisted that his attitude toward practicing changed after his marriage. He stated that he did not want his children to see him as a second-rater, so Los Comas - Proberaum-Demo 86/87 began in the summer of to restudy his entire repertoire.
I began to discover new meanings, new qualities, new possibilities in music that I have been regularly playing for more than 30 years. Perhaps recalling his own youthful brush with repetitive-stress syndrome, Rubinstein regularly advised that young pianists should practice no more than three hours a day. When you do, the music seems to come out of your pocket. If you play with a feeling of 'Oh, I know this,' you play without that little drop of fresh blood that is necessary—and the audience feels it.
I must have the unexpected, the unforeseen. I want to risk, to dare. I want to be surprised by what comes out. I want to enjoy it more than the audience. That way the music can bloom anew. It's like making love. The act is always the same, but each time it's different.
