For the past two years, Jenifer and I have been photographing many of the Master Class series for the Frost School of Music and I have found one remarkable thread through all of them that leads me to look forward to each of them: Musicians are among the most articulate of artists. Mr. Fleisher was no exception.
Two of my favorite quotes from the evening:
“A teacher gives you the tools to learn.”
“Without a performer music remains black dots on a piece of paper…But he is not the star…[the musician] is the vehicle to the music to get you to where you can get a view.”
On Thursday, October 4, 2012 Leon Fleisher will conduct the Frost Symphony Orchestra in Concert at the Gusman Center @ the University of Miami
More to come…
