The American electric violinist Tracy Silverman, is fascinating in his thoughts about the classical music world and how the pressures that come from that world can contribute to performance anxiety. He trained at the Juilliard as a classical violinist but then moved to playing a range of eclectic styles, which he says feels much more comfortable and authentic for him. He asks, is it really a case of “he who makes the least errors gets the prize?”
He explores the difference between creator and re-creator, talks about the importance of ‘failing’ as a creative artist and how the ego can impact performances.
