The Philly Sound Off: Conversation - Part 1
Richard Amoroso (host)
‘In this episode, Benjamin and I discuss my initial road of how I was introduced to him through my golf pro. Next we discuss time and how everyone experiences “time” in such a personal way. Benjamin then gives many musical examples at the piano of tempo and time. Some of the examples analyzed and discussed are Beethoven’s 9th, Beethoven’s 5th and Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1 amongst other pieces.
Benjamin also discusses how he interacts with the orchestras he conducts and the unique way he receives feedback from the musicians.
Benjamin then discusses how he will go ahead with this year with his Youth Orchestra without meeting live.
We then discuss other topics such as vibrato and the metronome.’
