The Will of the Tones…
“Play from the heart, not like a trained bird!” (Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach)
If I know only the WHAT of music —
what sounds come when —
I’m like a parrot, who repeats what he’s heard.
If I know WHY —
the desire that gives life to each note —
I can BE the music.
In The Will of the Tones —
a new series of performances and lectures on Podfan —
I explore the inner life of great music.
In the lectures, I draw on Heinrich Schenker’s approach to musical analysis. A knowledge of basic theory is presupposed.
The cost is $15 for a month — new episodes each week — or $175 for a year.
