Language Barrier

A thought-provoking article about the language of music from the perspective of different musical camps, from the blog of Minnesota Orchestra violist Sam Bergman.

"In yesterday's post, I talked a bit about conductors and arrangers who "speak the language" of orchestra musicians, and how important that can be to the success of a non-classical orchestra performance. And that got me thinking back to an uncomfortable experience I had several years ago, during one of the early years of our Composers' Institute."
