Carl Ph. Em Bach: communicate to the heart and speak to the imagination

From experience we know that all too often the people who listen to great technicians and virtuous, though talented, can not capture any sense: they arouse astonishment but not emotions, actually generating a sense of boredom.  

Who is able to communicate the heart and spoke to the imagination, has other qualities than just a virtuoso who just play the right notes: indeed, melodic and linked units would no longer have any meaning if he was wrong even chords.

(Quotes from: Versuch über die wahre Art das Clavier zu spielen, Teil 1, Berlin 1753 )
