(Actually, the whole issue was about him.) Only subscribers can see it now, although one thoughtful student had a pdf of the article in his site. I lost the link. I'll try to get the link, which has his more popular quotes.
I remember one from the book 'The Expanded Quotable Einstein'.
"Mozart wrote such nonsense here," after finding it hard to play one of his violin sonatas(I think).

He probably has harpsichord, keyboard, oboe, bassoon and whatnot versions of other concertos, as well. I'm seriously thinking that he has no more than a couple hundred original compositions to his credit.

There are trumpet concertos (as I'm sure you know), violin concertos, double bass concertos (as I'm sure HRH knows), and there are brandenburg concertos. But I've never seen a brandenburg, much less known of anyone who plays one.

First, (supposedly) Joachim playing Brahm's first Hungarian Dance
and then, a series of images of Beethoven from birth to death, set to the music of the Cavatina from his string quartet No.13. Very nicely done.
