“Avoid sentimentality in your interpretations. Play solidly with strong sound uncluttered by unnecessary nuances.”
Nicolas J. Perrini
"You never eyeball a horn player. They're stuntmen. You don't eyeball stuntmen before they're about to go near death. Never tell a horn player you played beautifully last time just before a concert. They look at you and they're always thinking, I could die now. You know there's something else behind the eyes. And so you have to let them do their very difficult thing without too much disturbing."
Sir Simon Rattle
“You don't have to be great to do something. You just have to not get tired of working at something every day”
