ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

>> I CAN SEE SPUN GOLD OR

LIQUID PLATINUM.

HOW ABOUT YOU?

IT'S NOT VERY FAR FROM THOSE

IMAGES TO MUSIC.

IN FACT, THAT'S VISUAL MUSIC

IF I EVER SAW IT.

OUR NEXT PIECE IS ABOUT MUSIC

FOR THE EAR.

IT'S ABOUT FRENCH FLUTIST JEAN

PIERRE RONPAUL AND I SHOULD

CONFESS AT THIS POINT THAT I'M

HIGHLY PREJUDICE.

I THINK HE'S TERRIFIC.

HE GETS A QUALITY OF SOUND OUT

OF THAT STICK THAT NO ONE ELSE

CAN AND HE MAKES IT SEEM SO

EFFORTLESS.

WHICH IS WHAT MAKES HIM THE

MASTER HE IS.

COMES BACK TO THE IDEA OF NOT

TRYING TOO HARD.

HE MAKES THE MUSIC JUST SEEM

TO HAPPEN.

IN A MOMENT YOU'LL SEE HIM

TRYING TO CONVEY SOME OF HIS

MASTERY TO A GROUP OF YOUNG

STUDENTS.

HIS MASTER CLASS IN THE TWIN

CITIES THIS SPRING WAS

SPONSORED BY THE WOMEN'S

ASSOCIATION OF THE MINNESOTA

ORCHESTRA AND BROUGHT TOGETHER

A GROUP OF PROMISING YOUNG

FLUTISTS FROM AROUND THE

REGION.

IF THEY SEEM A BIT NERVOUS,

REMEMBER, NOT ONLY IS THEIR

TEACHER THE MOST FAMOUS

FLUTIST IN THE WORLD BUT THEIR

AUDIENCE CONSISTS OF 500 OTHER

FLUTE PLAYERS, WHO KNOW EVERY

NOTE.

[ ♪♪ ]

>> INK PROBABLY IN THE SHORT

AMOUNT OF TIME THAT WE'LL EACH

BE PLAYING, HE'LL BE ABLE TO

GIVE US SOME MUSICALITY IDEAS

AND PHRASING AND

INTERPRETATION.

[ ♪♪ ]

>> GREAT TO GET OUT AND SEE

OTHER PEOPLE.

>> WE HAVE TO START.

>> I THINK HE'LL PROVIDE A NEW

WAY OF LOOKING AT THE PIECE

THAT I'M WORKING ON.

>> IT'S A MISTAKE.

>> NOT DISCUSSION POSSIBLE.

>> YOU KNOW, WAY BACK, START

PLAYING,.

[ Applause ]

>> GOOD MORNING.

>> GOOD MORNING TO YOU.

>> PATRICK WILL PLAY.

>> YOU SEE THAT PICTURE ON

ALBUM COVERS AND YOU SEE HIM

NEXT TO YOU IN THE FLESH, AND

YOU'RE PLAYING FOR HIM AND

IT'S BEEN A DREAM OF MINE TO

DO IT SINCE I STARTED PLAYING.

YOU'RE SCARED.

YOU'RE THINKING, YOU KNOW,

WELL, LET'S GO AHEAD.

ONCE HE STARTED TO PLAY, YOU

GET INTO IT.

YOU PLAY IT.

THAT'S WHAT IT SHOULD BE.

AND THAT'S -- YOU KNOW.

>> NOT FEELING CONFIDENT IN

YOURSELF, IT'S BETTER TO STAY

AT HOME.

YOU KNOW.

YOU MUST KNOW ALL YOUR

MISTAKES.

>> YOU HAVE TO BE ON TOP OF IT

ALL THE TIME.

WHOLE MOUTH, STOMACH.

MIND, INTERPRETATION, ALL AT

ONCE AND IT'S NOT EASY.

[ ♪♪ ]

>> WELL, I'M WAITING FOR A LOT

OF TECHNIQUE.

AND ALSO PERSONALITY.

[ AUDIO UNINTELLIGIBLE ]

PEOPLE TRY WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG,

THEY MUST BRING SOME WARMNESS

IN THEIR PLAYING, IT'S VERY

IMPORTANT.

IF THEY ARE COLD, IF THEY ARE

NO TEMPERMENT, THEN THERE IS

NO HOPE.

[ ♪♪ ]

>> OKAY.

LET ME SHOW YOU.

YOU KNOW.

HUH?

WE HAVE TO START.

[ ♪♪ ]

>> THE MOST DIFFICULT THING

WHEN YOU TEACH SOMEBODY, IT'S

WHEN HE'S ALREADY AND THERE'S

A LOT OF MISTAKES.

THEN IT'S REALLY PAINFUL.

IT'S TERRIBLE.

BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO DESTROY

EVERYTHING FOR IT TO BE GOOD

AND IT'S JUST -- THE THING I

HATE BECAUSE I HATE TO

DESTROY.

>> THE SAME WAY, AT THE SAME

RESANCE IS WHEN YOU SING THAN

WHEN YOU PLAY THE FLUTE.

HUH?

RESONANCE.

IT DOESN'T BECOME AN ORGAN.

>> NO.

>> YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

>> YEAH.

>> JUST -- LIKE THAT, YOU

KNOW.

[ WHISTLES ]

THERE'S NO HUMANITY IN ORGAN.

IT'S A SPECIAL INSTRUMENT,

BEAUTIFUL.

BUT, YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST --

>> YOU SEE SOMEBODY PLAY FOR

HALF AN HOUR, YOU ARE NOT

GOING TO SAY EVERYTHING YOU DO

IS BAD, YOU KNOW.

YOU HAVE TO START AGAIN.

GO AND PLAY, PLAY THE DRUMS,

YOU KNOW.

PLAY SOMETHING ELSE, YOU KNOW.

>> YOU KNOW, HE SEEMS VERY

SERIOUS. >> HE IS.

HE IS VERY SERIOUS.

>> WELL, I WAS THRILLED TO

HEAR HIM SAY THAT.

ANYBODY LIKE HIM, THAT

IMPORTANT, SAY SOMETHING NICE

LIKE THAT.

[ ♪♪ ]

>> OKAY.

[ Applause ]

>> THANK YOU.
