The Simultaneous Conversation
Daniel Barenboim describes music as different from human interaction through speech. If two people cross talk each other, then neither understands the other. Conversation only works if one talks and one listens and then switch roles. In music, the conversation isn’t verbal, so each participant’s voice is heard and understood at the same time. Hear him explain this musical principle. Read more...
Ditching the Intermission?
British pianist Stephen Hough addressed the issue of shrinking and ageing classical music audiences. Admitting that it’s a complicated issue, and acknowledging that many ideas have been floated – better education, more creative repertoire, lower pricing etc – he went on to focus on one of the more practical aspects of the subject: the intermission.

Jazz Conflicts Between Giants
Great genius sometimes begets great egos. Such was the case between the members of the Bill Evans Trio and others in the jazz scene of the late 1960s. American jazz purists rebelled against any European influences, but both Miles Davis and Fletcher Henderson put them in their respective places. Read more at rhinegold.co.uk
New Learning Research Offers Hope to People Who Feel 'Stuck'
One might think it may be easier to master a large set of skills one at a time, but new research shows that not to be the case. In fact, what used to be considered 'overload' is now the preferred method. It may not seem as if much is retained right away, but long-term development and retention of information and skills is much greater when the mind is forced to work on many things at once.

Young Pianists Realizing The Worth of Past Masters
The past paragons of piano performance enthralled audiences with their combination of power, insight, and almost otherworldly connection to the music they were playing. Young pianists of today are slowly figuring out that they don't 'know it all' and that tapping into that vast realm of greatness isn't a sign of weakness. Instead, it's a sign of a willingness to learn and bettering oneself. Read more at primephonic.com
Too Much Focus?
Yevgeny Sudbin sits upon the precipice of immortality. Following such once-in-a-lifetime talents as Richter and Rachmaninoff in the sphere of Russian pianists, Sudbin sometimes finds his attention wandering.

Say Follows Great Eastern European Tradition
Fazil Say draws heavily on the music of his native Turkey in both his compositions and in his performance style. He is only the latest in a long line of distinguished musicians who have relied on the same source for their inspiration, such as Bartok, Enescu and Ligeti. Read more at bianet.org
Cho Fights Boredom
His parents never forced him to practice grueling hours or to lock himself in a room with only Czerny's 1,100 etudes for company. Instead, they nurtured him and let him make his own decisions. Now, Cho finds the sameness of performing the same piece over and over to be a danger to his overall musicianship. He draws on the freedom of expression his parents allowed him to freshen 'old warhorses' as if he were playing them for the first time. Read more at yonhapnews.co.kr
Spanish Jazz Goes Back Further Than We Think
Alex Conde grabs the audience's attention at each even he plays by fusing jazz with flamenco. He draws heavily both on the music of his homeland and on the ground-breaking melodies of Thelonius Monk to produce his rare sound. Read more at berkeleyside.com
