For me, it's important as a performer to set music in context so that it can speak powerfully to listeners. My goal is to devise programmes where individual pieces of music coalesce into a conversation or a drama, each work throwing the special qualities of the others into sharp relief.
If the venue is appropriate I like to talk to the audience during a concert, giving some background about the composers, the music and the reasons why I have chosen to perform it.
