“A very important word, “interval”, because it’s the heart and soul of music. You see music is not made out of notes by themselves, but out of the intervals between one note and another. That’s why it’s so necessary for us to understand this word, interval.” This quote from Bernstein speaks for itself and our concert explores the many ways musical notes relate to one another to form the foundation upon which the music is built.
