Going back to basics

if a single note can't sing
how can a symphony,
how can a concerto move us
if the players play only to technical perfection.
the composer's heart and soul were spilled
onto these staffs, key signatures and tempos
a distillation of bile and saliva,
the guts of humanity,
music comes from breath,
breath is life.
