Bach Cantata 106 with Gloriae die Cantores // here
I love making music. I love thinking about music with professional musicians as we prepare a concert. I love not thinking and being in the moment while performing a concert. I love creating music with my students. One of my favorite parts of teaching is being with a student while she dares to try something new. I love the process of choosing what to focus on and what to ignore and then slowly inviting the ignored elements back in.
"Sarah Cantor, who danced the music as much as played it with such joy and sprightly ease that one wished she had been given more to do than just the one piece. McStoots’s softened his sound so tenderly for the second aria that, along with Cantor’s achingly delicate playing, the performance made for the warmest, loveliest moment of the entire evening.” —The Boston Musical Intelligencer
