He not only influences me as a musician, but also as a human being.”, says Kit Armstrong referring to Alfred Brendel. “He is the greatest musical talent I have met in my entire life”, says Alfred Brendel about Kit Armstrong, who was thirteen when he first met him, leading to an extended period of intense guidance and counselling.
