As I greet the audience before a concert I wish to share with You how very important You are for the creation of music.

The concentration of an attentive audience has often propelled me into artistic heights where the music seems to be soaring all by itself.

It seems like the Spirit has taken over command and my body becomes a vessel for channeling the music.

Although I have practiced my instrument for 40 years and will continue to do so as long as possible,

it becomes clear that the energy of what I play comes from a source beyond me.

The beautiful paradox is that it also feels great inside and gives me a sense of oneness with all of Life.
