Tonight on a Public Broadcasting station, a performer was asked to
discuss his own emotions while performing, and he said: "With [this
music] I restrain my emotion and allow the music to speak for itself."
I wonder how often this is the proper way to think about music?
Always? Only with certain compositions? Never? At what point do
you risk .... I don't know, emasculating? .... music by not putting some
of your own feelings into it?
