Mr. Doktorski said, "Once, when studying a Chopin nocturne, my college piano professor insisted that I should not simply depress the keys of the instrument with my fingers; I should caress the keys like I would caress a lover. In this way I could more easily enter into the spirit of the music and share that intimate experience with an attentive listener."
