I listened to the second improvisation, with its bells, its chimes, the chance rebounding of metal balls, with the strumming of the piano. I thought about Marigó’s courage and the sheer muscularity of holding a dialogue with Schubert and Rachmaninoff. A fragment by Houellebecq that I had recently read came to mind: “Studying the old masters for oneself is, basically, the only exercise worth undertaking, and even that one can do without. If we agree with Schopenhauer, the best way to reform the art schools would be simply to close them”. How well you play, man! I also thought. You don’t so much tame the music’s demon as befriend it. You’re not the interpreter -which is a very ugly word-, not the interpreter but rather the accompanist, like the riverbed in relation to the river.
