An interesting change of perspective

Raoul Pleskow

I had a chance to meet Raoul Pleskow today and hear a fas­ci­nat­ing lec­ture by him. He said some­thing very inter­est­ing that reflected a use­ful change of per­spec­tive. When writ­ing for the piano, he said, “You’re not writ­ing a piano piece. You’re writ­ing a piece for two hands.”

This really stuck with me, as it returned the com­po­si­tional focus back to the human­ity of the music.
