My colleagues tell me: "Play more. Turn out"
In the St Lawrence String Quartet we sit in such a way that the f-holes of my viola face away from the audience, and sometimes its voice can be lost. So my colleagues tell me: ‘Play more. Turn out’. For many quartet violists, this comment is so painfully predictable in coaching, rehearsals and post-concert receptions, that it’s something of a weary cliché or a running joke. But that’s because it works.
