I always think it’s interesting to hear what musicians have to say about their craft and the music that they’re playing. Ms. Trautwein, made some particularly apt comparisons between growing through music and cultivating a garden; Mr. Rosenwein provided a bit of insight to the not-so-glamorous life of an oboist (who knew they made their own reeds?); and Ms. Hashizume provided some information on the differences between the baroque and modern violin, and how that affects the sound.

I read it here.

Yes, it’s not-so-glamorous at times. But I do love it!

i have to practise my oboe for the rest of the night.

If the Grammy youth march continues apace, Mr. Jamie Fox may not be allowed on stage next year without a performing fetus beside him.

(The last line in the article is rather humorous too.)
