Abstract

by Sharan Leventhal Playing chamber music is one of life’s great pleasures. The threatening. Students’ nervous laughter is a symptom literature is wonderful, of course. But there also is the joy of their discomfort. Here they discover that there are that comes with shared experience. At its best, chamber psychological walls separating them from their partners. music requires developing profoundly human musical relationships that are intuitive and creative, intimate and On the Move vulnerable. Yet, many students find it difficult to access these I have found one of the most immediate paths to the kind deeper levels of communication. Some, having never felt of deep connection required in chamber music is through such intensely personal musical intimacy, simply don't realize dance and movement. A lifelong dance devotee, my current the possibilities. Others may sense hidden depths, but are favorite style is Argentine tango. Additionally, I have been reluctant or unable to lower their emotional defenses. Because fortunate to collaborate on multiple occasions with Olivier achieving these relationships is critical, this article explores Besson, a colleague who teaches dance improvisation at The some ways in which we can help our students get the greatest Boston Conservatory. rewards from chamber music
