Q: Do men make better pianists than women?
Whale: [On an emotional level] men and women are exactly the same. But physically I can’t imagine any woman playing the Chopin Godowsky etudes or Rachmaninoff piano concertos; it is just not there by nature.
Q: When you lived in London you used to own a black taxi. Why did you buy one?
Whale: I love the city and really admire London taxi drivers as they have to have four years of knowledge training in order to know all the streets. I was never allowed to take money but I sometimes picked people up and people gave me money anyway. I think I made GBP 50 over two years so I figured out I better stick to playing the piano.
Q: After your competition victory in Warsaw, you phoned the Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman, who said that there was nothing he could teach you.
A: Yes, I phoned him. I would like to talk to all the great pianists: Murray Perahia, Alfred Brendel, and ask them what they think about music. Talking to them, hearing their life experiences, would be different from just hearing them play.

you can’t make any generalizations. Everyone has the capability to play bad, and good.
