The experience of art

Form and content

“I think that one way toward a more intelligent and involved appraisal is through a connection with the pieces, and that one way to develop that connection is to talk about what the pieces mean to people who have spent a lot of time with them: the content, if you will. This approach can also help bridge what I see as a general shyness among the audience to develop their own proprietary sense of the repertory: to find their own strong likes and dislikes, and dare to say that a piece in the standard repertory isn’t to their taste.”
