Yesterday a chamber music coaching session with my quartet turned into a long conversation with our coach, a well-respected chamber musician and member of a long-standing string quartet in the Boston area.
She talked with us about a number of things:
getting through the times when it all feels like drudgery
And at one point, she mentioned an aspect of music that she had been involved in for a number of years, and I said, "Oh, that's what I really want to do!"
And she looked at me hard, and said, "Then why aren't you doing it?"
Now I can't stop thinking about that.
