Moments from Methods
“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” –Confucius
Each method is accompanied by an improvisation, which is loosely notated and relies on improvisation by the performer/soloist. Note the distinction between pauses and breaks. Some sections are to be played continuously, while others include short pauses and the three larger sections have a formal break.
