Lean Forward!

February 8, 2010

Last week, Kyle Gann published a great excerpt from Robert Ashley’s text where he discusses the problems with recitals, specifically the passive nature of listeners.

The same day I read that, I picked up on a neat old music performing group in my community.  If you’re in the Essex County area and would be into early music… this sounds like a great opportunity.  Why not learn to play what you love to listen to?

This all, of course, reminds me of the concept of Lean Forward Music, and its importance in rebuilding Art Music’s importance in society today.
