Friday, November 27, 2020 – What do Brahms and baseball have in common? For cellist and Minot State University music professor Dr. Erik Anderson, they have a lot in common. For him, it all starts with deep listening. On this Day of Listening, a retail-free alternative to Black Friday, Anderson shares his love of ball and Brahms.
Backstage at an October talk-show where we were both guests, a conversation with Ashley Thornberg inspired this interview on baseball, music, and how important the observer is in defining an experience. The surface presents the same sights and sounds, but so many details tend to lie hidden in plain sight (sound!). Many thanks to Ashley for revisiting this idea, which grew out of car-ride conversations with my graduate cello professor, Yehuda Hanani.
