‘Convergence’ Max Baillie interview

Violinist Max Baillie talks (and plays!) lucidly about the cross-pollination of style and culture that informs his performance practice whether it of Brahms, contemporary composition, folk, improvisation or Gambian music.

Interview by Peter Wiegold and Martin Butler at Club Inégales, January 26, 2015.

    Enlightening interview — nice. I particularly noted Max’s approach to keeping things “fresh” as it were, whereby music that is well-established and “known” can still present itself as novel for the player as well as listener. i agree that this is to do with how music “plays out” in one’s own mind, as much as the feedback one gets when playing an instrument and thinking, “Ah, that was unexpected!” Had there been more time in the interview, I would have liked a question or two that may have dug a bit more into Max’s musical mind, and where his conscious attention “goes” during performance.
