As people listening to performances, we may be transformed by what we heard. We speak in awe of a performer or a performance, hearing a musicality and virtuosity we envy and appreciate.
But as performers, as teachers – how often do we discuss the sublime? the spiritual?
Do you think about that when you play? Do you discuss such things with your tutor? your fellow pibroch players?
