Now I have my answer.
“Well,” writes second violinist Jennifer Leshnower, “We are split down the middle….typical Quartet!”
Since two of them prefer Brio and two of them prefer Blossom, they’ve put the question right back to me: they want me to choose which piece I like best. I suppose that’s the way it should be. But how do I choose which one I like better? I’d be damning the other one to likely disembowelment, which is hardly a pleasant thought.
Odd, though: I wouldn’t give it a second thought if they had made the decision – it’s just having to decide myself that feels uncomfortable.
So naturally I’ve asked them if they would consider playing both.
