Practice day off. Need to get some sun in my soul before I can put out more musical feeling.
When I feel the grubbiness of life weigh on me, I return to Mozart to remind me of infinite beauty.
Music cannot lie, but a performance or piece can fail to convey the truth found in music.
The beautiful emotional & structural proportioning of Mozart helps balance the psyche and mind.
Mozart is healing through his inimitably crystalline balance, wit, variety, melody, sublimity. And for accessibility in all that.
It's the freedom in time that gives life to a musical phrase.
But the freedom in time giving life to a musical phrase must be parsed architecturally, not randomly. It must make sense.
A note perfect, literal performance does not necessarily mean it is musically well parsed or that it draws you in with style.
