Inquiries from my Inbox:  David from Nebraska writes: “I wonder what suggestions you have for developing skill with harmonics.” Delaney asks: “When you're performing, what kinds of things do you focus on or think about while you're playing? Do you ever find your mind drifting to random thoughts?”

 

Random Musical Thought: Is Bach the only great composer whose music is still satisfying to hear even if done metronomically and without expression?

 

Main Topic: A conversation with violinist/composer/comedian Aleksey Igudesman. For more information about his many projects, please visit www.alekseyigudesman.com
