12 inspiring quotes about string playing 2016

2016: twelve great issues of The Strad. Here are some pieces of inspiring wisdom from the artists featured in The Strad this year…

‘In theatre and in dance we often see collaborations with contemporary art forms, so I don’t understand why we don’t have more of that in classical music. When you look at jazz, or rap, or hip-hop, there are many truly great artists, but they are not working in our art form. So I started thinking: why are we not friends? Why are we not in touch with what is happening? Coming from a background where everyone plays classical music, it is not clear how what we do serves our community. We need to reflect the diversity of the cities we live in. We need to draw on that idea of art being embedded in communities.’
