No rehearsing!

The moment is precious: After decades of experimentation in teaching and in performing, I am now capable of matching in physical speed the object of my curiosity: vibrational speed. Since 2019 I collaborate with two superb musicians, whose reaction time is faster than a speeding bullet, and whose technique knows no limitations: the three of us are fearless in recording without rehearsal some of the subtlest music that exists: Mozart Piano Trios. In these unrehearsed recordings you can hear the “boring” Alberti bass come alive in the overtones of all the instruments; you can hear every tiny sympathetic vibration. It is not what you would hear in a commercially produced recording: too risky, too exposed, too messy.

What does that have to do with singing? Everything. Nothing is more responsive to nuance than the human voice. Sing!!!
