I was saddened yet again today, when I heard one of the most amazing musical talents perform. I was saddened because this musician hasn't "made it big" on level that kissin or vengerov have, but I don't even have to think twice about how much better he is than them
Is this what the music business has come to? Will a great interpreter not make it if he or she isn't marketable? This musician has won all the big competitions basically...is very nice...there is just no reason that he shouldnt be teaching at Juilliard and soloing with berlin and cleveland and the such. This is what he deserves and I am saddened...I really don't get it.
