小提琴家基東·克雷默 Gidon Kremer —
一方面我理解音樂並不關乎完美，完美是不可能達到，而且只追求或渴望完美時，美會消失。如果你能忘記完美的荒谬 — 完美音準，完美樂句，完美風格的演奏，音樂便會擁有更多生命力、傳達的更好且更有影響力。但是同一時間我已經被完美主義感染，任何我沒做好的事情都會讓我非常難受。
I think that my father or in my family, I learned not only to work, not only what discipline is, and this is good, but unfortunately I was also infected by the virus of perfectionism which gives me a lot of suffering. Because one one hand I understand that music is not about perfect, perfect can’t be reached and beauty can disappear where only perfection is approached or desired for. Music is some kind of procedure that is much more alive and the communication through music can be much more powerful or effective, if you forget the non-sense of perfect - only perfect pitches, only perfect phrasings, only perfect stylish playing. But, at the same time Im infected by this, how should I say… by this virus of perfectionism and I am suffering badly about anything that I am not doing well.
I am not the one to say “okay, it was a nice performance, we enjoyed it, let's have fun.”. I am suffering from it, it drives me crazy to an extent that I actually can’t listen to myself in recording, because something, most of the time, something disturbs me and there are things that relate to perfectionism.
So I am in conflict with it, on one hand I am infected by this virus of perfectionism and I am striving for it. On the other hand, I just resented it as an idea, so I am in conflict.
