Don't over-medicate the patient

From Lucie Renard's 1999 article in La Scena Musicale entitled "The Accompanist: The Unsung Hero?"

"An accompanist shares many traits with an anaesthetist. He generally has studied longer than the surgeon and must constantly stay alert to prevent an unpredictable disaster, but when all is said and done, the surgeon (like the soloist) gets all of the credit."
