Please don’t be a tourist.
Please don’t just learn a piece without diving into the composer’s life, his contemporaries and influences inside and outside of music, and what was going on during his time.
To just play a piece and move on is like going to Paris to visit the Eiffel Tower and go home afterwards.
Sure we can visit the landmarks, we can play the pieces, but they are only the tip of beauteous iceberg we call music. We should try to dive into fully committed or not at all.
