Paul Badura-Skoda is the holder of the Boesendorfer ring. At 85 and still active on four continents, he is one of the last representatives of a generation for which music is the quintessence of European culture. Music reflects in each of the great composers the life and living style of his epoch, its striving for wisdom, sense, harmony, beauty, fulfilment in love as well as its search for the divine....What sets him apart from many other performing artists is his capacity to play not only the notes but also what happens between the notes, thus welding them into a poetic language, making them "speak."... Like his teacher Edwin Fischer, he creates a special, personal sound with many different tone colours.
