I was honored earlier this month to play a duo concert at Chatter with the great accordionist/composer Guy Klucevsek. This was a meaningful one for me, and I’ve been hesitant to write about it. Maybe I’m afraid to crystallize a rich personal experience into any simple set of statements. But there is one lesson I got from hearing Guy play close up that I wanted to share, and it’s easily put. I don’t know if it does justice to what I heard, but here it is: there is space between the notes, between every note you play. And you don’t need to be in a rush.
