Musicians Talk: First episode, Piano
On tour, over dinner, in the car, in the train, at airports, during and after rehearsals musicians don’t tend to talk much about music, but when they do you get to hear ins and outs that somehow never seem to surface in articles.
Guus Janssen, Oscar Jan Hoogland, Michiel Braam and Marta Warelis talk about original ideas, teachers, teaching, the influence of other players (Willem Breuker, Tobias Delius), playing inside the piano for which Cor Fuhler (who passed away 6 days after recording this episode) had found nice solutions.
Many thanks to Micha de Kanter and Philip ten Brink for the recordings and Seeltje van Boeckel for the editing.
Many thanks to Bimhuis for setting up the table and providing us with the equipment.
And many thanks to Carolyn Muntz for being the spider in the web of the Doek Musicians Collective.
