An Insight Into Performing

Here's Terry Teachout's almanac quote from yesterday. It's specifically about poetry, but I think it works as well for making music written by others.

"Poetry does not reason about serious things, it depicts them. When we read and remember it we mold ourselves; when we recite it we share what we have become."

Richard Brookhiser, "Rusher and Poetry" (National Review, May 16, 2011)
