Listening has two aspects: Paying attention is the most obvious one. But the other is equally important: expressing yourself with trust that you will be listened to.

Perhaps this best expresses why I became a musician--why it matters so much to me to pursue this way of life.

What I find truly magical is that every once in a while I feel as if I am hearing sounds that are still alive after hundreds of years. These are like memories that transcend the time frame of ordinary existence.
