The Guardian: Why Musical Variety is the Spice of Life

Thomas Gould:

[S]oloists are diversifying, whether through playing chamber music, directing ensembles from their instrument or improvising. I’d argue that not only is this a good thing for the sanity, health and musical understanding of the players, but it’s also exciting for listeners, and can only help attract new audiences.

A diverse repertoire is refreshing for everybody.
