I was listening to NPR yesterday morning and heard about Tasmin Little’s project to re-vitalize the classical music industry. She will be going to prisons and under-privileged areas to play her violin for free. She is also giving away some of her performances of Bach and other composers for your listening pleasure. Of particular interest is are the introductions that help explain the music. If you’re like me who, like paintings and other art, just doesn’t ‘get it’ when I observe and listen, these will be particularly helpful.I believe the interpretation and introductions is another attestation to the fact that we need an interpretive word in order to truly understand. We can sit and listen to notes ascending and descending, but unless we understand the composer’s intent, we will be left clueless.Download your free music at: The Naked Violin
