hollow

November 4, 2009

“I am not afraid to say that music’s message should be taken seriously. And I will defend that message because it has more essence than it is given credit for. We are seeing a great hollowing out: a hollowing out of content and of meaning in terms of the message of music. In the concert business there is mounting pressure for the music to glitter, to be clean and perfect and played with virtuosity, when it should really be about protecting the meaningfulness of music. But this is a dying concern.”
