What Comes Next?


This should be the essential question whenever we listen to music, or to anything, in fact.  All too often, however, the performer knows that we already know what comes next and that we are not paying the least attention.
A great performer never assumes the inevitability of the next whatever it is, whether a note, a rest, a change of some sort, a repeat.  It's always the first time and you have never heard it before.
