Notable Quotable: Nicolae Feraru on the importance of practice
"When I [was] four or five years, I started to play on this instrument, [the cimbalom.] But if you’re not studying the instrument, you can lose a lot. Even today... I take the hammer and every day make the exercise [of playing]." -- Nicolae Feraru, 2013 NEA National Heritage Fellow
