Be very patient!
Lucy Melvin, violinist
Being a teacher gives another type of understanding of the repertoire which we play. When you also teach it to others you see things in another light.
Francesca Dego, violinist
As an interpreter I also feel a very strong sense of responsibility in communicating the scores I play, in being their voice, so the audience can hear them. I don’t think one can ever feel like they have “arrived” in this job. What is so thrilling is what is around the corner, and the hard work you need to be ready to get there.
Stephen Waarts, violinist
Sometimes the music that I love the most comes the least easily to me, but it’s hard to know if the difficulty is actually to the benefit of the eventual interpretation or just difficulty. However, as long as I feel I can communicate something special through a piece to the audience, I’m happy to keep exploring.
