To understand what music has to be, you have to live for music. Who's ready to do that?
Morton Feldman, quoted in a 1976 interview, published in Desert Plants by Walter Zimmermann.

What has become of my life as a musician?
After...
playing in three ensembles dedicated to contemporary music,
lived in Vienna for 7 years,
having built a house in the heart of Montreal...

Playing and still playing chamber music from all eras with extraordinary people, who are looking to explore challenges outside of their daily safe zones.
A great desire to go back to basics: to play the classical repertoire and re-consider historical interpretation practices.
Teach contemporary music repertoire to students at McGill University's Schulich School.
Collaborate with young musicians and their professors during their studies and during the Summer Academy.
To reduce the orchestra for students in conducting.

And especially capturing the creativity around me. The composers who continually inspire me.
