Jean Echenoz, Ravel

“Ví dobře, že provedení určité skladby, zejména pomalé, vyžaduje výdej fyzické síly, čemuž se radši vyhne. Oč lepší je ležérní přístup - ten nedávno k dokonalosti, když zkomponoval doprovod k Ronsardovi na duši jen pro levou ruku, neboť předpokládal, že sám bude pravačkou kouřit.”
Jean Echenoz

“It happend that Bob referred in front of Paul to the young woman met in Chantilly; it happened that Paul spoke to Bob of the one from the cinema that he'd had so much trouble seeing again. It never occurred to them that these portraits might bear a certain resemblance to each other, and the fact is that they bore none at all.”
Jean Echenoz, Double Jeopardy
