I’ve been watching some of Ben Zanders music interpretation master classes on the YouTube. They are all fabulous, and this one in particular I love. I know little about classical music but this cello sonata seems to me to be out of this world fantastic. Zander opens doors for the players in this series in so many surprising ways and it is wonderful to watch it happen.
“What’s missing from your playing is the weirdness….”
“Have you ever watched a bullfight?”
It seems at some points as if Zander is going to explode into the music, and what a performance by Nitzan Gal, cello and Moriah Trenk, piano! Who knew classical music could be this exciting?
