I recall, years ago, one of many, many flute lessons with my mentor, Louis Moyse. We were working on the Bach Partita in a minor.
After I had played through the third movement, the Sarabande, Louis stopped me. I remember his exact words: “Make it sound simple.”
It took me years to realize that Louis was coaching me on life, through Bach. In this particular instance, Louis was telling me that clear, straightforward communication has a power all its own.
