I listen to a lot of music. Probably between ten and fifteen Cds every day. (often not in a "deep listening" mode) I am realising
this morning how much of that is for specific purposes. Today, as I have been for weeks I am listening to a recent Berio Cd
featuring some beautiful Viola writing. I am currently writing my first composition involving Viola and I am growing to love this
instrument. I bet that more than 50% of my listening is purposeful, rather than purely for pleasure. Of course, it is hard
not to feel pleasure when listening to music but I can think of some exceptions.
