On That Note: Creativity

Nov 4, 2019

Every month we talk with cellist Robert Cohen about the life of a touring classical musician. It’s a segment we call On That Note. This month finds Robert recently moved to the Suffolk countryside in England. And between unpacking boxes and hooking up utilities, he’s thinking about creativity. He's especially focused on the kind of creativity that is found outside of performance — like practicing.

"It's incredibly creative because it’s about exploring all the time," he explains. "I don’t want to play a piece of music the same way I played it before so it’s all about finding other ways to look at it."
