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.
