Interview: Melody Fader - On the Presenting of Music Through the Person

Posted on Friday, May 29, 2020
I speak with Melody Fader, a classical pianist who performs in NYC and also Europe in the summers, on her relationship with learning and performing music. An insight arises as to how beauty in the music is related to the listener: it is shaped by the performer in its presentation, to be interpreted by the listener. Connect with Melody through her website www.melodyfader.com. We close with a short piano performance by me to serve as the guided meditation for the week.
