i agree w/him!

what do you think of this article? yes, its also bernard holland

– maybe its not relating to my concerns exactly, but one of the things most important to me right now is having a very strong visual connection to the music- meaning that i try to avoid performers adding any pizazz or showmanship- unless its a result of their understanding of the material- i’ve seen too many new music pieces where virtuoso players just make an overly physical performance of a piece because they didn’t put the time in to understand the piece…thoughts?
